AutoStart handles the running of Startup scripts/documents. StartUp 
scripts are run AFTER Morphic is up and running. This means that there 
is no chance at all whatsoever of fixing a broken image by using a 
startup script.

All we were trying to do was to interrupt squeak before morphic 
processes get going so that we could delete a broken process. Removing 
the FFI plugin to achieve this is 'not standard procedure', neither 
should it be.

If 3.10 is aiming to remove Morphic and still be usable in some manner, 
then it is worth having a look at the AutoStart logic, in order to build 
some form of image fixability in by design rather than accident.
