Just so we are all on the same wavelength, I downloaded 2.4b again. First I
used the "packaged" MacBinary (Squeak2.4b.sea.bin). I got the same (update
1164) selector error again, even with the freshly downloaded .changes.

I then downloaded the uncompressed .changes file (Squeak2.4b.changes)
directly from the archive. Using this copy of the .changes, I was able to
update (including 1164) with no problem.

Don't have clue as to why.
