Kernel/VM Fiddling

Hello Squeakers. I'm looking at modifying message dispatching in
the VM. One of the attractions of Squeak is being able to change
the VM, and then simulate it within Squeak. I think I've found where
I need to make my changes, and know what changes to make, but I'm
a bit puzzled *how* to test them.

Executing the following doit, scrounged from InterpreterSimulator's
class comment, caused a walkback due to some out-of-bounds

    (InterpreterSimulator new openOn: Smalltalk imageName) test

I've looked through the Squeak docs and FAQs, but couldn't find
anything relevant.

Help? Thanks!
