Summary 0007641: storeString sent to a visible Morph goes into an infinite loop.
in a work space evaluate:

Morph new openInWorld storeString.
Additional Information The loop comes because storeString follows the parent ivar as well as all the submorphs.

What I am after is there should be some way to tell a morph to print a string that allows the creation of a quasi-copy of itself.

This means each object needs to think about what ivars are state and which ivars are simply cache.

Also rather than infinite loops storeString should raise an error right off the bat for morphs it can not handle. Or it should raise a deprecation warning but that leaves its function in limbo.
