Setting up Squeak 6.0 beta 21757-64bit-202205110711-Windows-x64 with
default options hangs when installing Metacello.
Installed Squeak with default options (next, next, next, etc) until all
6 steps are done and then selecting everything except deprecated
packages (also tried installing with the deprecated package, same result!).
Was able to interrupt Metacco install and pop up a debugger but the
debugger window cannot take the focus!
