        squeak squeak.image /dev/null arg1 bag arg2 of arg3 of chips
results in error[1].  But
        squeak squeak.image '' arg1 .....
and then printing "SmalltalkImage current extractParameters" gives:
 a Dictionary('ARG1'->'bag' 'ARG2'->'of' 'ARG3'->'chips' )

The first case fails because String>>unzipped doesn't check for isEmptyOrNil 
on self. With the patch:
  self isEmptyOrNil ifTrue: [^''].

the first line works as expected.
