I already had squeakvm installed.  In fact I had already tried different 
versions of the squeak browser plugin, including the earlier 
squeakland_3.8-3u_all.deb and the squeak-plugin deb files from 
ftp.squeak.org, and I had never encountered this error before.

By the way, I have tested the ftp.squeak.org version with two different 
browsers, and it works with Mozilla but does not work with Firefox.  Any 
idea why that should be the case?
