This can happen with a non-native override in Parser (yes, sad but
true). No official Monticello version so far did handle overrides
which is probably one of the reasons why many are not correctly
categorized as -override. An other might be that at the time they have
been done, they were not overrides (Squeak 3.7). We had also to remove
overrides for kernel image support.
