Try with newest Swazoo 2.2beta, which contains a patch for this problem.

It is true and this is legacy of Aida coming from VW to Squeak. We need 
to cleanup that and every help such as yours is encouraged.

About 'myfile.st' asFilename, this need to be changed to (SpFilename 
named: 'myfile.st), this is then a portable because it is based on Sport.

I just started a code review to find all above cases and correct them
