Hi Lauren,

thanks for the bug report, but I doubt that there will be an easy solution. This balloon decoration is basically a hack that you can find in ReleaseBuilder class>>#openWelcomeWorkspacesWith:. There is no support for decorations of this kind in (Pluggable)SystemWindow. If Squeak Morphic had more characteristics of a prototypical/pluggable system, we might be able to say something like

balloon addSteppingCode: [balloon comeToFront].


browser model override: #modelWakeUp with: [balloon comeToFront].

However, this isn't the way Morphic/Squeak work (today), so I guess fixing this edge case won't be worth the effort of hacking a subclass or something like this. :-)

When the Welcome To Squeak window is minimized, the hot air balloon in
no longer redrawn correctly.

On minimization, the portion of the balloon that is outside the extent
of the PluggableSystemWindow is left on the screen.

On restoration, the portion of the balloon that is inside the extent of
the help topic frame is occluded.
