Aaron -

I suggest that you fire up a healthy squeak, and execute...

	ChangeList browseFile: 'SickSqueak.changes'.

This should let you view either the entire changes file (probably very long), or the most recent million characters, as a list of changes.  You can then select what you care about, and file these out to a changes file that can be read into a healthy squeak.  There may be a way to nurse your image back to health as is, but I can't glean enough info from your report to know.

Hope this helps.
