when I start the simulator as suggested in its documentation in a
fresh 3.8 image, it relocates object pointers for a while and then
signals an error indicating that an improper store into an indexed
object had taken place. So, the simulator seems to be "broken" in the
3.8 release already.

Next, I have installed (updated) VMMaker to 3.8b6 via SqueakMap,
reinitialised the ObjectMemory constants and issued the same startup
sequence as before. This time, simulation doesn't work either, but the
message is different: message not understood -

Both of these happen on an Intel Mac.

Of course I don't just want to complain. If I can help somehow to make
this work again, please give me pointers indicating where I can start
