No, just bog-standard Squeak running bog-standard images on X11. Both
a 3.10 image and the latest Pharo image do it.
Another problem is that killing the VM violently will prevent the rest
of X processing events well. The XTerm that I'm returned to after
killing Squeak won't accept any keyboard events. I consider this a bug
in X though: by that stage, Squeak is dead and shouldn't affect the
rest of the windowing system.
In other news, trunk doesn't build:
gcc -O3 -mtune=core2 -DLSB_FIRST=1 -DHAVE_CONFIG_H
-fPIC -DPIC -DPIC -o sqUnixSoundPulseAudio.o
error: pulse/simple.h: No such file or directory
Easily fixed, but this should pick up the lack of PulseAudio and not
try to build that plugin.
