Do you use the name of the image you run as an argument to saveAs: ?
Using this approach does only work for me if the names are equal.
Otherwise running image A with the script and using saveAs: 'B' gives
a working image B and an image A which quits immediately after start.
I thought the saveAs would change the images name. So I don't know how
image A can be affected by this script.

I played a little with code and got the following:
path := [MC repository]
repo := (MCDirectoryRepository new
directory: (FileDirectory on: path)
(repo loadVersionFromFileNamed: (
repo allFileNames first)
Works ok for me. Additionally I tried to do a poor window closer:
) do: [:class|
(Smalltalk classNamed: class)
[:each| each delete]].
Here I don't know how I can force a close of a window which has unsaved
changes. And I don't know how to switch of flaps permanently.
But I'm lucky. I can copy my image to something like deploy.image and
squeak deploy deploy.st
to customize the image like I want it.
