I had a viewer spec for #input category for a new Morph
	slot resolution 'Resolution in dots per inch' aNumber Player getResolution 
Player setResolution:

This code worked fine in Squeakland image but failed in Etoys image. Etoys had 
another slot with the same name in VideoMorph so the type returned for my 
slot was incorrect - there was no warning of a clash. I had to change 
resolution to dpi to get the code to work.

I thought a slot is a visual wrapper for a property. Why should its name be 
unique across classes? Is this a bug?
