That does the trick.  Tried it on my side and works out of the box to
raise the error.

If there is no MCRepositories.st file in the same folder as the image,
it brings up a prompt to select one.  I can see how this might be confusing.

I see 2 weird effects when running #loadRepositories.  Let me know if
any are what you're seeing.  These were already there, apparently:

My MCRepositories.st has some github repositories in it; these generate
a single, corrupt,
entry in the repositories list when filed in.  I checked the paths and
they do exist.  I just deleted it and re-saved.

There is a duplicate of the default package cache repository; doing
	MCRepositoryGroup reset.
before loading doesn't prevent it, as that repository is always present.
 The duplicate resists being selected, but may be deleted.  Each list
row counts as its own index, but selecting any but the first occurrence
visually selects the first.  This may matter for HTTP repositories with
a user, but is fine for directories.

	I attached a modification of the #addRepository: code.  It was using
#== instead of #=, so it would never remove the package cache entry when
filing in.  I can't post it to the inbox tonight, but that should fix
one of the weird things that happens when loading the MCRepositories.st
