Second, saving the image produces a visible flashing which is for some reason completely discomforting - it looks as if there was an error that the system tried to inform me about by the flash.

  I wonder what did I do?  Ah, yes...  What I did was for the
transition between projects, when "from" and "to" are in the same
size.  Upon saving, obviously the class side startUp must be the
problem.  Prob'ly providing a right #startUp: for DisplayScreen would
do it...
