Thanks - it sounds like one should pretend "squeak" does not exist and just 
run "inisqueak", even when running multiple times, is that right? I have to 
try tomorrow .. it was confusing to me, as "ini" sounded like 
run-one-time-only .. plus i did not initially know what it does, so i copied 
the image and changes and did setup a shell script to run squeak with that 

Thanks Milan
