[Squeakland] saving squeak projects - a bit of troubleshooting needed

I'm a technology teacher in a K-8 school in Chicago, and am teaching  
Squeak to a bunch of 4th- 8th graders right now.  Has anyone else had  
any difficulties getting kids to save their projects to an outside  
server?  My students are able to successfully publish their projects  
about 90% of the time, but it's the other ten percent that's the  
killer - when they open their previously saved projects, they get  
nothing but an error message and advice that they should probably  
click "abandon".  As of now, most kids understand that the program is  
on the experimental side, and are willing to start over again, but I  
can see frustrations mounting as the projects get more complex.

A related question:  once a project is published using the "publish  
to a different server" option, is there any simple one-click option  
to save the updated version to the same location?  Or do they have to  
click on "publish to a different server" again and re-select their  
folder on the server?

Thanks for any help in answering these -

ps. We are running Squeak on iMacs that are using OS 10.2 or 10.3,  
and saving to a G4 file server, if that helps at all.
