Ouch! Is this a Squeak issue or a machine issue?

Are you sure your changes file is hosed? I mean, what happened to the
*orginal* (not the save ased) changes file? It's pretty easy to reconstruct
an image from a changes file. (but if you don't have it, you don't have it)

Again, do you still *have* the original changes file, anywhere? If so, you
may be able, aside from fileing in changes to a fresh image, reset the path
that the image is using to not find the changes file.
Does the specified network name not being available mean that the *file*
isn't available? I'm confused by that.

Eh...Only the decompiled code (no comments or variable names :().
