> 3) Click in the search bar in the upper right, type "asFloat" (without

> 4) Make it dirty. Click in the text pane and insert a space.
> 5) Click on the second method. Squeak displays, "Changes have not been
> saved, is it okay to cancel those changes?"
> 6) Click "No".
> 7) Now try to click on the desktop. The dialog keeps coming back.
