it should have a value of zero if it's not used. Obviously in C
that's zero by the magic of auto-initialization of that C variable,
and so the code runs without care, but in Smalltalk it's nil and you
I'd make a mantis report and supply a patch to initialize the value
explicitly in the interpreter startup code initializeInterpreter: so
that the simulator will run.
