Hi Johan,

I started with Tobias' prepared image from ftp://ftp.squeak.org/4.4/seaside/,
then used the Squeak trunk update stream to perform a full update of that image
to the latest Squeak. This gives a current Squeak with the older Seaside 3.0
loaded. At that point, the two tests are still passing.

Now I want to update this image to the latest Seaside 3.2 in order to find
the cause of the failures. I tried manually loading all Grease packages from
http://www.smalltalkhub.com/mc/Seaside/Grease11/main, and Seaside packages
from http://www.smalltalkhub.com/mc/Seaside/Seaside32/main.

I am now getting some test failures related to FileSystem, so I suspect that
I may have loaded some Pharo packages that I should not have included, or
maybe I do not have the correct version of Grease.

Is there a Metacello configuration for Seaside that I should be using to get
me closer to the correct configuration?
