That is some very new code. Therefore I suspect my mileage will
improve when I upgrade this dual-core Intel Mac to Linux or a recent
OS X (rather than persevering with an unsupported version of Mac OS X.
Darwin's binary loader changed circa 2008, among other things, so
running the latest Xcode with an older Mac as target requires special
care and feeding.)

That will be very interesting to drill into (when I get the tax
returns done :( ) I'm afraid I didn't know OSProcess could fork a
Squeak until your post on Tuesday.

The darwin builds of the Unix VM have AioPlugin. I assume your demo
won't work with the fallback I/O protocol.
