The problem is that the Squeakmap update process tries to install a  
Monticello version that cannot cope with the stubs left by MCInstaller  
(at least that's my theory of the problem). I can load it, when the  
walkback pops up I edit the offending method in place (wrapping the  
ancestor creation in an #ifError: block) and continue. But I can see  
how this won't fly with other users ;)

We should indeed consider adding Monticello to the -dev image and  
stripping it out for the release. Or maybe even better, fix the  
Squeakmap update process so it can be easily installed.
