This does not quite work.  And also Abe-san says that I'd better make
it work with scim first so I am taking that path now.

BTW, I have a long standing question of the development process.  I
create a VM by doing ./mvm, which creates display drivers and VM in
one way or another, and installs them to products directory somewhere
upthere.  I have trouble seeing my changes to code gets reflected
sometimes.  (Say, I change a printf message somehwere in sqUnixX11.c,
run mvm and invoke the squeak shell script in
products/cogspurlinuxhtARM/ but it seems to pick up a different binary
from somewhere else.

What do people do to make the debug cycle go faster on Linux?
