This is in 5503

When following code:

TEGClient class(Behavior)>>new "This was
    Receiver: TEGClient
    Arguments and temporary variables:

    Receiver's instance variables:
        superclass:     Object
        methodDict:     a MethodDictionary(#initialize->a CompiledMethod
(2790) #newSocket->a CompiledMethod (3186) #socke...etc...
        format:     136
        instanceVariables:     #('socket' 'serverName' 'instanciaTEG')
        organization:     ('as yet unclassified' initialize newSocket

        subclasses:     nil
        name:     #TEGClient
        classPool:     nil
        sharedPools:     nil
        environment:     a SystemDictionary(lots of globals)
        category:     nil

TEGClient class>>start
    Receiver: TEGClient
    Arguments and temporary variables:

    "Answer a new initialized instance of the receiver (which is a class)
    with no indexable variables. Fail if the class is indexable."
    ^ self basicNew initialize

So is a good thing do not to have extra code
If I do TEGClient new (and have initialize code correct) , only have one

Good work KCP guys and thanks Ned.
