Hi Dave, I encountered this problem with the squeaksource code October
of 2013, when I was doing the Magma-backed source.squeak.org:


and fixed it in the versions at:


After that, you had saved squeaksource.com from oblivion, but did not
(IIRC) incorporate the fixes and improvements I had made to the SS

versions into the version that runs SqueakSource.com -- as there are
other fixes and improvements besidse this one.
