In Oberon.Text, make System.Time or DayTime.SetClock the 
last of the InitCommands.  Eg.
InitCommands = { ... { System.Time } }
or InitCommands = { ... { DayTime.SetClock "" } }
If the result doesn't appear in the System.Log you've narrowed 
the problem.  You can expand this strategy.  In my Oberon.Text, 
System3.Tool is last in FinderTemplates.  If you use Gadgets 
you can check whether that definition worked.

More important, edit carefully.  Pay close attention to 
matching { and } correctly.

There are many non-obvious details of usage to discover 
or learn.
