Wow, sometimes I really amaze myself ;-)

Sorry for the noise. As you can see I am not experienced with using MC
in a shared environment, so you can officially consider this to be your
dumb-user smoke test.

I can't reach SqueakSource at the moment to verify the process end-to-end,
but after manually completing the update, everything looks good and the
fib test gives 89 as expected.

So, on 64 bit Linux with 64 bit VM, closures are working fine.
