Bug was in

Player>>noteDecimalPlaces: aNumber forGetter: aGetter
"Note the given preference of decimal places for the given getter"
| slotInfo |

        "<Begin trouble>"
slotInfo _ self slotInfoAt: (Utilities inherentSelectorForGetter: aGetter).
slotInfo floatPrecision: (Utilities floatPrecisionForDecimalPlaces:
        "</End Trouble>"

The method Player>>slotInfoAt: has a bad side effect that it does not just
report the slotInfo, it creates slotInfo.
I think I figured out the problem in Etoys-kfr-18
