It's called testing :-) And many thanks for doing it!

Well, interestingly the method Beeper class>>beep: never existed (or at 
least I can't find an image with it). The only thing that did exist was 
Object>>beep: (which will work implicitly for requests for "Beeper beep: 
'clink'"). Object>>beep: on the other hand has been deprecated since 
Squeak 3.7. It looks like David finally nuked them in 
39Deprecated-dtl.16 in November.

If we need Beeper class>>beep: back can you post a version that 
addresses the problem?
