It's the build-in touch pad of a MacBook Pro - it generates a
button-2 click, which is equivalent to a MightyMouse right click (or
any 3-button-mouse's right click).

I think the actual problem is that Squeak's modifier mapping is
wrong. Generally, on Mac OS the way to access the context menu (like,
in the Finder) is Ctrl-click. So it's only natural that Apple choose
that mapping to deliver a right click. In Squeak the context menu is
brought up by Option-click which is rather un-Mac-like, but I'm not
sure what outcry we would generate if we changed that.

But they have to be relative to each User's home at least, an
absolute path won't cut it.
