This is going to sound stupid but my solution to this is to save twice.
I do exactly what you describe in several of my image building scripts.
Basically the sequence:
SmalltalkImage current saveAs: 'something'
SmalltalkImage current snapshot: true andQuit: true
The reason that I do this is that snapshot:andQuit: has logic to make
sure that when an image is restarted it doesn't quit. You could
probably duplicate that logic but I found this solution to be more
expedient. I'm eager to hear a better way :-) :-)
