Relax. This is related to Environments, yes. I made environments use
read-only bindings for classes, after a discussion here concluded that
it was the correct behaviour. (Can't find the thread, ATM though.) If
it's *not* the correct behaviour, it can be changed. If it's
preventing non-class globals from being altered, it's a bug, and can
be fixed. And even if neither of those things is true you can always
catch the exception and resume it:
[Array := nil]
do: [:n | n resume: true]

If we're at the end of a release cycle that's news to me. What's the schedule?
