Indeed, this hasClassSelected is wrong when browsing other
environments (regardless of the special case "Uniclasses").
Browser should not use Smalltalk to access any browsed objects. It may
use Smalltalk or better self class environment to find other classes
from the Tools package for IDE purposes, but then it might be better
to just refer to these classes directly without the dynamic lookup.
