Welcome! And welcome to the esoteric arts of Morphic layout. I find this to
be by far the most mind-boggling area of the image. You actually got away
easy with the layoutChanged trick.

The last line is your problem. You're specifically telling the TextMorph to
fill the horizontal space. However, if you change it to #rigid, you will not
be any happier because the text will be all scrunched up vertically.
However, if you pair #rigid with #contents: instead of contentsWrapped:

		TextMorph new contents: 'Some very very very very long string...'. 

you will have the same size as after layoutChanged without the explicit
width: setting.
