It seems that it will. Follow discussion on squeak-dev! Overrides (aka 
monkey patching) are otherwise very nice feature, if you know how to use 
it and are aware of consequences. I'm using overrides on VisualWorks for 
years without much problems.

No, because I don't know how. I need to have a special image for fixing 
that, it seems. I cannot fix in image where a package with those 
overrides exist. Other possibility would be to temporary remove 
SqueakSite package, but this image is live demo, so this won't go at all.

Maybe an upgrade of our repository to at least MC 1.5 is to be 
considered soon? It seems that Pharo guys already working on that.
