  It works fine with the VM we used to distribute with the previous
public installer, which claim to be 3.10.10 but I think with some
modification on the SecurityPlugin where it expands the
pseudo-variables like %MYDOCUMENTS% in etoys.ini.  (But after
substituting them in the .ini files it still crashes, so the expanding
them may not be a problem.)

  If I put self halt in #enterRestrictedMode and step execute it, it
goes through fine.  It seems to suggest that some stack unbalance in a
primitive (disableFileAccess or disableImageWrite) may be the issue.

  For the interest of release time, I think I put up an installer with
the old VM for now, and look into the difference from it and 3.11.2
