Behavior is the same under Windows and Linux using the same image (i.e. my
working image). It's a little quicker under Linux, about 2 minutes. Using
the (more or less) original full image of 3.8 it shuts down in a few
seconds. I guess the next thing to do would be to file-in my stuff into a
clean image and see how that behaves. As there is no detectable CPU activity
on Squeak I would guess it is waiting on something.
