For testing and debugging purposes you may want to run the image headed 
against a VNC server. We do this for most of the stuff running on our 
server. VNC listening on localhost only, then use a ssh tunnel to 
connect if needed.
And, as happens on a regular basis to our SqueakSource servers, the 
image locks up, just connecting to VNC an wiggling the mouse brings it 
back to life.

At least the 3.8.1 image, includes a couple of fixes and especially the 
FastSocketStream (replacing SocketStream), as pointed out above.

Although 3.9 might work as well (or better), I just haven't really used 
it as much yet.

Check if there are any zombies of your application in the image.

Oh, you mean the image I usually work in? ;-) I'm old fashioned, still 
typing and reading everything myself ;-)
