Hi Lauren --
> The .1 is the debugger upon entry into MVC.
Hmm... the list of submorphs seems to include a "nil" here:
 in PluggableTextMorphPlus(Morph)>>doLayoutIn:
Which is then #pass 'ed on in #doLayoutSafely because the receiver in question is not a morph but nil and thus cannot be found on the stack:
 in  in PluggableTextMorphPlus(Morph)>>doLayoutSafely
What I do not understand is why this simple incident counts as a recursive error:
But then I look at the bottom-most portion of the stack you shared:
 in MorphicDebugger class>>openOn:context:label:contents:fullView:
-- and more not shown --
So we were already trying to open a debugger but failed in layouting an instance of PluggableTextMorphPlus, which has a submorph that was "nil" instead of a morph, which in turn does not understand #ownerChanged.
Yes, that is a recursive error. Debuggers need to rely on scrollable list and text fields to work. But why is that instance of PluggableTextMorphPlus broken in the first place? Hmm....

Aha! This here is a rather recent change where we wanted to see the world docking bar in the project's thumbnail before entering the project for the first time:
So, I think I will guard this #assureMainDockingBarPresenceMatchesPreference for now until we can find a way to safely do stuff for other projects. Well, things like "ToolBuilder default" might have to be a dynamically-scoped variable after all. We should think about this after the release.
Thanks for the report!

I was running the Test Runner on packages pulled in by checking the
bonus options at the end of the preference wizard and the home project
aborted. I didn't land in the emergency evaluator, only the MVC root
There are two logs I took:
The .1 is the debugger upon entry into MVC.
The .2 is attempting to create a new morphic project.
I also saved the image, one right before running the test runner and one
after morphic quit. I restarted the before-image to see what test
produced the crash and was unable to reproduce it.
