Hi John-Reed, hi Tobias,

I think that this is not the SystemWindow's fault but "name" as a concept for morphs is kind of broken. See the following methods in the Morph class:


I suspect that this has happened due to missing task-specific means of configuration. Like #printString, there can only be one to be used by all applications and tools. Here, the terms "internal" and "external" and "known" suggest that somebody tried to add such kind of configuration for "name". Without success, I would conclude. :-)
