So, it looks like a bug. I changed: ThisOSProcess >> #initialize

It used to say:

processAccessor removeDependent: self.

and I changed it to say:

processAccessor breakDependents.

The problem is that if you're running on a different OS, the receiver is
not the dependent. The receiver is actually an instance of WindowsProcess
when the image is saved, but when it is resumed, it gets replaced by an
instance of UnixProcess. The process accessor has the windows process as a
dependent, so the removeDependent: call does nothing.

Hopefully David will read this and figure out how to fix it properly...
