Think about the issues here - two copies of the same image running,
recording changes to the same changes file. You open the changes file
for write from the first image to get to a point where it records a
change. You try to open the changes file again for the second image.
Does your OS allow opening a file multiple times to write? Does it even
allow opening to read once it's already open for write?
And if it _does_ allow multiple writers, is it sane about it? Is Squeak
smart about it? Just for starters, imagine the confusion if you need to
later look at the file to try to recover some work.
All in all I think it's safest to recommend not trying to run the same
image multiple times.
