I loaded in the code you added in Squeak 4.3, executed the above, and 
got "MessageNotUnderstood: ByteString>>printf:". I then loaded in Printf 
from squeaksource.com/Printf and it worked.

Monticello added some extra methods to various classes in the image. 
Don't look at FormatString>>printf: Look at String>>printf:, which is a 
superclass of ByteString. The protocol list has printf with an * before 
it - *printf. The Monticello package added some extra methods to the 
String class.
