Hi, Angel,

We'll get to the bottom of this...

** What version of "squeak etoys" are you running?  (find out from  
'about this system' from the world's halo menu).

** If you can locate the "SqueakDebug.log" file created when the error  
happened, it would be helpful if you could send that file.

** If you have a particular project in which this issue manifests  
itself, perhaps you could send that.

** Does the error happen *every* time you try to remove any variable  
from any object?  So, for example, if, in a new project, you start  
with a single object, open its Viewer, add a variable, then  
immediately try to remove it, do you see the error?  (And does anyone  
else reading this see an error in such a circumstance?)

** If possible please give us a precise sequence of steps that will  
allow us to encounter the error.

** Are you 100% certain your image does not have some non-standard  
modifications in it which might be affecting things?

** Has anyone else on the mailing list encountered the problem  
discussed here?

Sorry to have no answers, only questions, at the moment...
