Well Tim forgets that on the mac that the image name is UTF-8 and it
has to be translated into the
character set the VM is using, simply returning the string *might* be
good enuf, (sp). However likely that might not work well in Japan.
/* Image file and VM path names. */
extern char imageName;
However it seems the interp C code has lapsed back into referring
directly to the imageName string.
likely no one has tested this for a few years, but as a backwared
compatible step the imageName string is setup when the imagename is
calculated which is why it works.
