The startup sequence of the image seems buggy. On Windows, the image 
comes but doesn't display anything unless you do a "restore display". 
And if John delayed the creation of the main window until the first time 
one of the display update methods is called it may never show. Executing 
the following manually will fix the problem:

   SmalltalkImage current snapshot: true andQuit: true.
   World install.
   Display forceToScreen.
