Color category does not work with painted objects, only the ones dragged
from the objects tool.
Maybe the viewer should hide the Color category for SketchMorphs ?
In the traditional Squeakland image, there are in fact no color-
related items offered in a Sketch's viewer.
But some olpc-specific changes over the past year resulted in the
addition of several new color-related slots and a refactoring of the
color-related categories, and as a result we've for some time now
we've been seeing the spurious color category and its spurious color-
related slots being offered in a Sketch's viewer.
I've entered this bug on the TRAC system as ticket #5437 "Viewer for
SketchMorph should not show color-related items".
And I've just published an update to the etoys2.3 update stream
(1827sketchColor-sw) which fixes the bug.
