   Actually these are name of events that are triggered by some Widget.
   (We have been trying to un-camel case, but we are failing here....)

   If you have Etoys environment to play with, try this:
       1. drag "Connector Arrow" from "Connector" category of
ObjectCatalog to desktop
       2. open viewer for the arrow, drag any tile to desktop and
create scriptor
       3. press "normal" button , then menu titled "when this script
run" is showed.
           available events for the widget are listed in the menu.
           And you could see those events like
"attachmentOwnerChanged" in "more..."

       Though event name is spelled in CameCase without spacing, you
are free how to spell translation :-)

hope this helps.
