I use version 4.5, but the implementation is still "^ aReceiver withArgs: anArray executeMethod: self". The (new) class method has no senders at all. May somebody look at it?

That is a good question. I'm not sure of the background on this, but
it looks like some refactorings that have not been completed. The suggested
change would call primitive 188 (primitiveExecuteMethodArgsArray) just as
with the current implementation, so I think it is just a refactoring cleanup.

Hopefully someone will recall the background on this? It looks like something
that we should not leave unfinished.
