I checked the changeset and found that you're forking the process at
priority 50 (#userInterruptPriority). AFAIK the process running the
startup code has priority 40, so the startup process will be suspended
while the forked process is running.

I also checked the MessageTally changeset (0431) and found that
MessageTally won't work in Cuis running on Cog, because some VM parameters
can be nil. See MessageTally >> #spyEvery:on: and friends.
