The problem is the name of the copy ends in a digit, and the class is
a subclass of MorphicModel.  The latter contains some special code to
figure out if it should log changes:
	"Dont log sources for my automatically-generated subclasses.
	Can easily switch this back when it comes to deal with
	Versions, etc."

	^ self == MorphicModel or: [(name last isDigit) not]

Presumably if I name my class Foo2v instead of Foo2 I'll get logging.

Whether the original class actually should be a MorphicModel is a
deeper question.  That constitutes one link between this secondary
problem (no changes) and my main one (getting some Morphic stuff to
work, which involves scrollbars, which involves MorphicModels).

But, it's nice to have one mystery down.
