Is flood (from the VID dialect) broken?

I have "REBOL/View 1-Jan-2011"
and I am trying to draw a picture using flood, but it doesn't seem to be working. At all.
No errors are thrown when I use it.
Can anyone help me with this? I want to fully grasp the digital powers of Rebol. (he he he)
All appreciated,

Where is your REBOL code?
The examples from here work: http://rebol.com/docs/draw.html#section-13

Oh! Sorry for that. And thank you for your reply Mr. Johnson
The code I used was:
view layout [
     box snow 100x100 effect [
         draw [
             box 20x20 80x80
             fill-pen orange
             flood 2x2
Which I took, precisely, from:
The result that I expected was the one in the photo the link points too. Instead I got a grey box with a black outline over a grey background (and no orange frame). I tried some variations but never saw a manifestation of the flood command. My guess was that maybe my copy of rebol (REBOL/View 1-Jan-2011) had the command broken and wanted to know what did the community know about this.
Any insights will be appreciated.

You are right!
The example given does not match the picture.
