Which indices exactly?  The comment might be wrong.  The Cog and Stack VMs
have a modified garbage collector in which certain parameters no longer
make sense and are answered as nil.  I need to know which indices to
distinguish between intended behaviour and a bug (and the comment might
merely be wrong).  Also which VM exactly?  i.e. what do you get for (1006
to: 1009) collect: [:i| Smalltalk getSystemAttribute: i]?
