Do you mind if I ask what happened so that the image broke? Was it a custom

Under some circumstances, it is possible to recover a broken image if you
have prepared for the case of failure. I use REPLServer, which is a telnet
server that executes Smalltalk commands in the image, to enter these image
via a "back door" and then recover the image manually. One helpful command
in REPLServer is:

: utils rebootMorphic.

Which starts you on a completely fresh, newly created Morphic project and
usually gets things going again. You can also suspend all (non-vital)
processes and restart only the core Morphic process to work out what went

REPLServer is available via the PackageUniverse in 3.10. Send all bug
reports to me :-).
