[squeak-dev] Dirty packages in trunk image

The problem with Collection appears to go back to 4.2, at least.  The
method in question looks related to some of the finalization

FlexibleVocabularies too - dirty in the 4.2 release (after checking changes).

For Monticello, it looks like this alpha image was saved after having
run the test cases.  *We should not do that* because we can't trust
that there aren't / won't be extranneous objects left around after
running the tests which shouldn't be put into a deployment image
(alpha, release or otherwise).

For deploying new alpha images, how about we keep using
ReleaseBuilderTrunk.  We can enhance it if necessary of course, more
importantly it serves as good "documentation" about how the image was
