Hi, Reed -

We haven't observed this problem, but we believe you.  We're planning
to redo the whole tutorial as much more of a web site all in the
Lively Kernel very soon.  Until that time, though...

Can you run the regular (non-tutorial) version of LK at...


or the recent beta...


It will be useful for us to know in either case.  If either of these
works for you, you could read the tutorial as static material, and
try the examples in the live system in another window.

Thanks, Reed.   It's always fun to talk about this work.  I'm glad
you enjoyed it.
