Hello Ricardo,

Hum, I wrote the dice example many years ago (2006) for a Linux magazine 
article, then I complete it yesterday with Etoys tiles. I don't know or 
I forgot about the code you point me but looking at some key methods, I 
am sure it is inspired from my initial example. Even the spelling is 
wrong as it was in my initial example (Dice instead of Die) until Oscar 
told me when writing the SqueakByExample Morph chapter, largely inspired 
from my article.

Regarding the bug you mentioned, it is fixed along other bugs related to 
rotated morph.

Thanks a lot for your feedback.
