I have seen this lately too. I'm not sure why it does it - but you
can load the package from SqueakMap. The current version is version 9,
but 7 is available there too. 9 may work OK.

You should load VMMaker (from SqueakMap) to get this class.

This is the main method from InstanceEncoder - it's using it to
unpack some plugin files onto the disk.

I think that the bridge will only work with the above packages
loaded. Once you have them loaded, if you can print

	DotNet ArrayList new count

in a workspace and get back 0, everything should be hooked up

Sorry for any confusion -
