Are you running on Squeak? If so  the error is caused by a difference
between Pharo and Squeak.  A fix for the WAWelcome package is available in
http://www.squeaksource.com/Seaside30, so you use Monticello to
update WAWelcome or change the following line in WAWelcomeComponentCreator>>
createComponent: componentName

    userComponent := WAComponent subclass: componentName
instanceVariableNames: ''.

    userComponent := WAComponent subclass: componentName
instanceVariableNames: '' classVariableNames: '' poolDictionaries: ''
category: 'Unclassified'.
