Hi Dave.

Maybe this change set helps. :-) Well ... that "--debug" still seems fishy. You must go past "Project" to show any interactive debugger. Why would "Delay" be enough? Hmmm... Still playing around with it. :-)

This does not work:

./Squeak.exe Squeak-Trunk-32bit.image --evaluate 3+4

At the moment, you leak the implementation details #reevaluateDebug and #reevaluateCwd outside DoItFirst. With just this little indirection, that leak would disappear:

I think I am misunderstanding this, but as you earlier suggested I should
write something for the wiki to explain how it works (or should work).
