This VM also opens and runs Squeak3.10.2-7179-basic.image :) and fonts [I  
have some exotic fonts in use] are rendered fine :)

I can't see why but the 3.11.1 VM refuses to open  
Squeak-3.10.2-Closures.image :( windoze (vista) pops up a small window  
with Squeak! in title bar and message text "Could not open image file".  
FWIW the .image file has 15.367 KB.
