Sorry, I didn't include the example, so here it is:

st> var5 := Fraction numerator: 123 denominator: 3 !
Fraction new "<0x1041b08>"
st> var5 printNl !
Fraction new "<0x1041b08>"
st> (var5 * (Fraction numerator: 1 denominator: 1)) printNl !
Fraction new "<0x104d998>"
st> (var5 * (Fraction numerator: 2 denominator: 1)) printNl !

do not answer a reduced fraction, the reduce private method is never accessed.

Please verify your assertions, as you obviously did (instead) for the #storeOn: bug which is real. #reduce is never called because the arithmetic operators compute gcd's on their own for speed.

st> ^(3/4)+(1/4)
