heh, i can barely help with this infamous morphic layout mess.
i only know that if you using proportional layout, then
if you want submorphs to be laid down properly, you must use
instead of just

Morph>>addMorph: aMorph fullFrame: aLayoutFrame

    aMorph layoutFrame: aLayoutFrame asLayoutFrame.
    aMorph hResizing: #spaceFill; vResizing: #spaceFill.
    self addMorph: aMorph.

(or, well, if you don't want your morph to be automagically stretched, try
to set only frame (with #layoutFrame:) because the above, as you can see
also sets hResizing & vResizing )
