  I installed SqueakNOS-gera.49.mcz to the fully updated OLPC Etoys
image, and ran it on a stock VM on Fedora 9 on my regular computer.
It ran, and when I evaluate

   X11Display class>>coloredRectangles

it displays rectangles, so the FFI in the image is working for some

  Then I saved the image, and replaced the SqueakNOS.image with it.
It boots, and show the initial Morphs I put on the screen did indeed
show up.  So, display drawing certainly works.  But it hangs there, so
the primitive usage of device initialization is not working in the
Etoys image + SqueakNOS...
