A MessageTrace is built (I trapped that ok) but if I ask for implementors or senders of any method in the list I get a separate browser rather than the added methods in the same list. If I toggle break in MessageTrace>browseAllCallsOn: it never gets run.

Click on the 'implementors' button - the browser that opens has a model that is a MessageTrace. That seems to demonstrate that the preference is actually 'true'. Click on 'senders' in the method browser & choose one of the menu of selectors. I expected to see the senders added to the method browser.

Suggestion; change the help text in the preferences browser to make that a bit clearer. A useful tool that you can’t easily discover and use isn’t really there.
