Assuming $15 is being shown as a 1K memory dump, versus a C String then it
would be proper to dump the ascii values and then octal values for
none-printables.  In this case the libName would be /home/ooplu/Desktop/Cog_
-display-X11  as you terminate on the octal \000  However are you sure the
parm being passed is a cString, or is it a Smalltalk string and you are
just seeing the object space after the -X11.  This of course would be
incorrect and lucky if the trailing byte is \000
