No (did not run the image manually) and yes (saved the image from the  
Opera browser after install+update code from server) and no (non-default  
preferences): downloading a fresh copy from
  - http://squeakland.org/installers/SqueakPlugin.image.zip
this one says 'Squeakland 3.8-05 latest update: #481 Current Change Set:  
Unnamed1' and also has no "golden" navigator flap (but "show shared flaps"  
are enabled on the world menu, as before).

Perhaps a platform (Opera, WinXP) specific difference? Should there be any  
other files (besides SqueakPlugin.image) on startup?

NB: after successfully doing an "update code from server" on the fresh  
copy, when saving the resulting image, FileDirectory startUp does  
DosFileDirectory assureDirectory: 'C:\My Squeak' which raises a debugger  
but, the directory exists (and is populated) and on the next start (browse  
page refresh), #systemInformationString still says update: #481. Saved  
SqueakDebug.log if that is of interest.
