I'm using latest Damien's squeak-web image (squeak 3.9), which now 
includes Aida too.  Also, a VM is a standard 3.9, downloaded from squeak 

Ops, that's not true! squeak -version returns 3.7! Hmmmm! Maybe is this 
a squeak from Suse Linux distribution? No, it seems that I actually 
didn't upgrade VM so long. I did download but not installed it, eh!

Downloading vm 3.9.8, installing, now version is:

	3.9-8 #5 Tue Oct 10 11:56:09 PDT 2006 gcc 4.0.3
	Squeak3.9alpha of 4 July 2005 [latest update: #7021]

Well, this is surely a first step to improve stability. Ok, let we try 
that again, still with VNC attached.

Thanks for the tip Nicolas!
