We are experimenting the same. Would be great to have that fixed for good.

> string := StringMorph contents: 'HelloWorld' font: (LogicalFont familyName: 'Arial' pointSize: 20).
> string color: Color white.
> string position: 100 @ 100.
> self addMorph: string.
> When I changed it to 30, it initially crashed. Now it doesn't crash, but the rendering is the same as for 20. When I change it to 40, it crashes. When I add two strings, one of size 20 and one of size 30, it crashes. All of these things render fine outside of Athens (i.e., I just open them in the world).
