Hmm, I not sure what is happening so I am sending your note to the Etoys developer's team. They will be able to help. It must be unsettling for you and your students to have the software to act the way you describe.

Let me speak for the EtoysIllinois team and tell you we are glad to hear you like the site and the resources!Would you be interested in attending one of our meetings with Google +? We meet year round, every other Thursday at 1PM, the next meeting will be May 23rd.

There also are weekly meetings of the Squeakland Education Team on Thursdays a little earlier in the day. Both groups enjoy meeting others using Etoys with students. 
Let me know.

Hi Kathleen,

Does this sound like something you can help with, Kathleen?  It sounds like
she has the latest version of Etoys.
