  All I do is to evaluate

ReleaseBuilderSqueakland new prepareReleaseImageForSqueakland


ReleaseBuilderSqueakland new buildInitialScreenForSqueakland

in a fully-updated image located in the SVN repository.  The screen

  Sure.  As I wrote, it behaves differently on whether it is running
on Sugar or not.  "it could be" means "it isn't", but probabably it
should be "it is".
