I've only tested WebTester on Pharo. Not on Gemstone yet. I've had to apply
a hack in HttpSocket for WebTester because there is a bug in Selenium RC's
internal webserver. Symptoms without the hack were timeout exceptions trying
to connecting to the Selenium RC. If HttpSocket is available in Gemstone, it
should work.

Let me know if you have any problems.
