In addition to making sure you're doing it in an otherwise empty
Morphic screen, you have to make sure your squeak window is large
enough.  The first thing it did when I ran it was to try to open a
menu past the right edge of my Squeak window, which failed.  I
switched to a higher resolution, restarted squeak with a
correspondingly bigger window, and all was well.

Is there any way to make squeak recognize a change in the window size,
without restarting?  It's a bit discouraging that Squeak doesn't
automatically register the window change and adjust the display bounds
accordingly.  (I'm on a Mac, if that matters.)
