I didn"t understood your last message there was not toolchain here .. this 
turn to be an obsession ;-).
but  it is interesting, the last build of cog/ff has the same problem than 
my build:

When I evaluate Win32Window class>>coloredEllipses
I have SmallInteger(Object)>>doesNotUnderstand: #getHDCDuring:

Win32Window getFocus evaluates to a integer handle, not a Win32Window.
