FYI, I just changed the InterpreterVM and CogVM jobs on build.squeak.org
to use a Squeak 4.4 release image for the VM source tarball builds. I'll
change them back to use the SqueakTrunk images whenever we get the issues
sorted out there, but meanwhile the process of generating VM source tarballs
from VMMaker and the Subversion repository is not very dependent on Squeak
image version, so this should do fine for now.
