[Squeakland] Little Problem

Hi, Kelly,

Hmm... I exactly replicated the scripts you depicted, hoping to 
reproduce the phenomenon you report, but I couldn't -- it would not 
misbehave!   My experience was that the square gets drawn whether I 
initiate action by hitting a "button to fire the script" which I'd 
torn off or by manually "running" the script, and I never once got a 
triangle instead...

So it would seem that whatever is misbehaving for you is caused by 
factors not visible in the screen-shot you sent.  Maybe you have more 
than one "pencil" object and some of the "pencil" tiles in you script 
refer to another copy of it, or maybe you have some other unseen and 
forgotten script from some earlier effort which is somehow having an 
effect on what's happening.

In any case, to make progress on this I think we need to get an 
actual copy of your project -- so please, if you would, email us your 
project.  If it's of modest size, you could email it to the 
Squeakland list, else just email it privately to me.

We'll get to the bottom of this!
