Here's a strange bug that appears to have arrived between 5.2b and 18615.

In a scratch copy of a recent image, add this code to IntegerTest -

	#(1 0 -1 2 -2 1073741823 -1073741824 10737418231073741823 "-10737418231073741823")  do: [ :each |
		self parse: each asString with: #parseIntegerLength: shouldGive: each ]

and compile it. Should be fine. don't worry about the #parse:with:shouldGive: - it's actually from PostGresV3 tests.

Now uncomment the last number in the list and try to compile it. Locks up on my Pi - so hard that cmd-. does nothing.

Works fine in a 5.2b image.
