Ouch! Then don't load closures, they break a bunch of tests ;)

I thought the model was more like:
- take a trunk mcm as starting point
- concentrate on fixing failures and errors
- mark irreductible as knowFailures
- select which pachages to remove to make a core image
- try fixing cycle again after unloading many packages -> Core
- select which pachages to add to make a full image
- try fixing cycle again after loading many packages -> Full

No ?
That said, I don't see so many tests failing in trunk.
