 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?
