So, what about providing a debug vm as well as the "production" one?  I know it requires some time to do it, but I think it can be worth it.

Not sure about other Linux distros, but in Fedora you can simply do this:

	yum install squeak-vm-debuginfo

Possibly you need to enable the fedora-debuginfo repo in /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo
