It works wonderfully smooth except one very very minor error that I
encountered under Win95 (BTW, I thought that it would be nicer if there is
only one progress bar so that I know where my overall progress are and how
much longer I have to wait.).  I have tried all the permutation of scenarios:

-  every time I use the automatic code udpates, then so some stuffs in
Squeak, intentionally quit Squeak *without* saving image using the system
menu (i.e. double click the top left hand corner of the window), a general
protection fault error will come up.  However, this would *not* happen if I
did not use the automatic code updates to download the code prior quiting
Squeak or if I use Squeak menu to quit Squeak (instead of system menu).  I
have no idea why this is happening.   

It might be only me.  But let me again list the scenario here:

Under Win95, bring up a clean image, perform auto code updates, double click
the top left hand corner of Squeak window and quite without save.  You
should then see this GPF error.
