Likely that is a bug, didn't test with multi button mice.

Likely that is a bug, let me see.

Not sure why that isn't the user's preference directory.

Ya, need to clip things.

The problem is that if we hide the squeak VM, then when we show it
does not show the arrow in the dock. If you have the
VM in your dock then you have no indication it is running, this is a
bug in 10.4. To test this change the VM info.plist
LSBackgroundOnly to true. Lastly I'll note if you truly hide the
application and the browser quits you end up with squeak
as a disconnected background task and I suspect many squeakland users
will not understand that it is still there and
running because for them it's invisible.
