I think you used the display scaling a lot...  The biggest problem
with it is that it defaults to 32-bit depth Display and all artwork
loaded into or created became 32-bit depth.  You could look at the
SketchMorphs in it and convert them to 16-bit (or even 8-bit with some
loss of quality) to save the space at runtime and on disk.

  (It looks like halo is disabled in the projects.  How can I get it
back for debugging?)

  I'm playing with Epaati-10 a bit.  Entering
Grade2/Math/Unit4/IIM4_2_money identification.011.pr and coming back
(the instance of Project did get collected, but the accompanying
PasteUpMorph serving as its world along with all objects and players
are lingering.  Now, I'm (again) looking at the issue so hopefully I
get to something...
