It seems that Aik-Siong Koh is trying to load a 3.10.2 image into a
simulator running inside the same 3.10.2 image and so doesn't care about
other combinations. Usually, the more recent the simulated image the
more complicated it is to make things work since it demands more
features from the simulated VM than an older image would.

Here are four bug fixes that are probably relevant for getting the
simulator to understand 3.10.2:


Previously I had just tried loading them all, but that didn't work and a
quick look shows that they are not compatible with each other.

My plan is to attack this problem (probably over the weekend) and
develop a script that will load all needed components and fixes so that
the simulator running inside Squeak 3.10.2 will work with the most
recent image possible (I will aim for 3.10.2 but might have to settle
for something older than that - the script will have comments on which
image to get).
