Bert Freudenberg commented on SQ-489:

Published as System-bf.12. Still needs a changeset to actually recreate the SpecialObjectsArray and reinstall the LowSpaceWatcher.

>         Attachments: LowSpaceAndInterruptHandler-3-dtl.1.cs, LowSpaceAndInterruptHandler-4Etoys-M1041-dtl.1.cs
> Would hopefully be fixed by adopting LowSpaceAndInterruptHandler-3-dtl.1.cs from

> Need change set that works with the current Etoys image though.

> To follow up on the above, I took a look at an Etoys-dev image, and I am
