BTW, to get it working on OsX, all I did was select the Stable Squeak
image I wanted to run in the finder, select "Get information" (or
Command-I from the menu), select "Specific Application," and then select
the Stable Squeak VM. This all worked without a hitch. Squeak comes
up, Morphic runs fine. Browser works as usual, so far as I can tell. I
can filein various of the Stable Squeak projects from the file browser,
but the project browser wasn't working, nor was the "command-line"
