this is puzzling: in a 3.9 image, using the "old" compiler, evaluating
"6 + 6 i" and "6 - 6 i" works fine. Enabling the new compiler, "6 + 6
i" still works, but "6 - 6 i" does not because the compiler converts
it to something nonsensical:
What the heck?
So why would the compiler, all of a sudden, think that i is not a
message selector when it appears after some -?
If this has already been reported, I apologise for creating noise. In
any case, I'd be happy if someone could give me a hint on how to fix
this. BTW it's NewCompiler 174 from SqueakMap.
