Make sure to run an up-to-date vm and image (and yes, the downloads are not up to date...)

And it's important that people report problems. If problems are not reported, it is as if they
would not exist.

Morphic is just crap. But what can we do else than slowly fixing what we see?

We just can't update pharo by example for every release... the day has just 24 hours.
But it is true that the version right now is far too old. (based on a horibly slow 1.0 with
a completely different browser...)

In general there are two options:

	-> give up and do something else
	-> fix the problems, step by step.
