Hello Paolo,

I can't reproduce the problems your reported. I tested on a XO 1 shipped
with Sugar 0.84.16.
I am cc back to the Sugar list to read for more feedback on similar

Check in the /home/olpc/Activities/DrGeoII.activity/drgeo the file
PharoDebug.log and send it to me.

I packed DrGeo 11.06 with the new COG VM, to improve the kids
experience. For example on XO 1 with this VM, DrGeo is just faster than
DrGeo on iPad. However this Vm could be instable, and crash may occur,
but not the hanging you mentioned.

Regarding journal, for next DrGeo version I may  get rid of the file
system dialog you are mentioning. By the way, you did not tell me about
my initial post: I am still looking for volunteers to help translating
the DrGeo user manual.
