From my experience the VM version is more relevant than the one of
the image. We have run into problems with Unix VM versions > 3.6 (and
apparently many other people have as well) -- problems we have never
seen with 3.6 VMs. Hence I tend to not upgrade and even consider
moving back to 3.6 VMs.
Michael, concerning the image lockup problem with SqueakSource
servers at Impara, have you ever tried to run with a 3.6 VM?
