Since BackSpace was written by a NeXT employee, NeXT put it's foot down and shut off access to BackSpace. There was such an uproar, however, that NeXT lifted there foot and put it in there mouth. BackSpace is now a developer Example in 3.x (located at /NextDeveloper/Example/Appkit/Backspace on any 3.x system). The permissions on sonata are left over from NeXTs foot stomping tantrum. As far as I know, BackSpace cannot be run from the login panel. -Scott W PS. there's also a /NextDeveloper/Examples/Appkit/BackspaceViews directory for the dynamically loadable BackSpace views.
