I have never been able to do that even with Squeakland image. I thought this 
was because the variable tile is a getter, not a setter. It can only be 
dropped on the right hand side of an assignment. Why would this be a bug?

I suppose it should be possible to pick up the setter from the slot definition 
and create a setter tile on the fly.

Yes, it would be useful,
