FYI, if anyone's interested, I finally posted a new 3.1alpha update for Whisker on the Whisker home page.  See http://www.mindspring.com/~dway/smalltalk/Whisker-31alpha-4048update.1.cs .

(First load Whisker.0.92-Sq3.0.cs into a current 3.1alpha image, close the debugger window that comes up, then load the above changeset.)
