IMHO projects are safe, but when something goes wrong I admit that
they are not easy to debug, and often in the past I had to delete a
project and to recreate it because I was not able to find where and
what was the bug.  But this may be only my fault...

You know I'm a user, not an expert.  From what you say I understand
that you saved a project and that in this project there were
references not resolving but you don't know where these references are
stored as you can't find them in the cs attached to the project.  I
can't answer this, I don't know if you can find them with an explorer..

I'm sure that there is some members of the Squeak community who can
say precisely what can't be file out later..and I'm pretty sure that the
reason is not related to only project...I'm thinking of block closure for
example...For myself I don't like the way project keep automatically
the changes I make in their pocket. Usually I would prefer that these
changes stay in the main changeset instead of the one of the project.
For now it seems I must play with the changesorter to reallocate these

To recreate the ProjectviewMorph you just have to do the following:

World menu/new morph/make ling to project...

and that's it.

Yes I do this lot of time without problem.
