In March 2017 there was a topic 'Dropping a morph gives me a funny
menu'  in which you took part.
The solution then was to execute
FileServices unregisterFileReader: CornerGripMorph
to solve the issue.
The discussion lead to the discovery that the initialization of
FileServices initialize  needs attention.
And there is no class comment for FileServices.
FileList uses FileServices. So the rewrite of FileList may be taken as
an opportunity to fix the few remaining issues with FileServices.
 FileList class
FileReaderRegistry := nil. "wipe it out"
 FileServices -- http://wiki.squeak.org/squeak/1001
 Which file reader classes are not touched by "FileServices
initialize"? -- http://wiki.squeak.org/squeak/1023
Note: What  FileList class registeredFileReaderClasses
says is that in the olden days FileList acted as a file registry.
This is now done by FileServices  but is does not do it for all cases .
 Unregister a file service
