Thanks, I've included this in the update, to allocate an extra 50k on the
Mac only. Thus the special VM is unnecessary and I've removed it:

The problem was that some FFI initialization is not brought along with
change sets properly. A workaround is included in the new change set:


I have tested it with the "Squeak2.8a-beo" package and it works as expected.

This has also made the original Mac FFI plugin work ok again, but I'm
leaving mine in place anyway.
