Hmmm, probably a slip up of some kind.

I have looked at the error log you attached. First of all - SM tries to
use any existing "sm" directory and an pre-existent squeakmap log-file.
It looks in the error log like it finds an old logfile and loads that
first - and that is when the error occurs.

So a quick fix for you is to remove that file (you could simply remove
the whole "sm" directory unless you have put anything in there yourself)
and try again. It should get a full fresh map from the net and should

The problem itself though seems to have something to do with an error in
SM to deal properly with changes in the category tree. I think it
"barfs" on the new "Squeak 3.6" category. I would be interested if you
could zip up and mail me your squeakmap.x.log file that you have
currently in your "sm" directory - pick the one with the highest number
if you have more than one.
