Thanks for the link.


I repeated the test of loading closure support from your MCUpdateTest
update stream, this time using the Pharo (Exupery) 32-bit Linux VM
rather than my homebrew 64-bit VM. The results are the same, with the
load stopping in the preamble to Compiler-ar.70.

So with respect to running the closure bytecode support, there is no
evidence of a difference between the VM compiled for 32 bit pointers
(Exupery build) versus a VM compiled for 64 bit pointers.
