[squeak-dev] Image not startable after save

Hi Marcel, hi all,

awesome that you have found and fixed the bug(s)! :-)


For my image, I have just identified a different cause.
On every startup of my image, I was getting an InvalidDirectoryError from NaturalLanguageTranslator startUp:
I admit that I have been getting this message for a few months used to ignore it until yesterday :D
Note that in my image, this debugger is not proceedable because of #processEventsSafely: (still testing Morphic-ct.1638), so a new UI process is started at this point. I assume this involves a call to #displayWorld.
So in my case, #processEventsSafely: was the problem. ActiveEvent is a WindowEvent here which should be marked as non-high frequent. See Morphic-ct.1641 (inbox) for a patch of that.
And also, System-ct.1161 (inbox) fixes this bug in GetTextTranslator.
Once I loaded any of these commits into my failing image, it started again without any complaints.

Confirmed: if I remove the flaps from my broken image, I can
successfully reopen it with the sources file in place. If I create a
new flap, it will not work with the sources file.

But updating makes more sense than losing all my flaps. :-)
