I encountered this problem and dug into it a bit and discovered that the
KomPackaging is loading it's own and now "incompatible" version of
"VersionNumber". This incompatibility creates all kinds of errors with
regards to "versionString" messages. A new version of KomHttpServer and
KomPackaging (and possibly KomServices) are needed that avoid this
"packaging class conflict" problem.

As Goran said, just say "no' to loading the "KomPackaging".

A system, possibly part of squeak map, that identifies "packaging" class,
methods, globals, etc... conflicts is desirable.
