You are probably missing something since AFAICT this all works just fine
(if it didn't none of the demos would work since they all store their
viewpoints in that place and they all get written to and reloaded from
disk). My guess is that perhaps you're doing something like here:
"... some time earlier ..."
island future at: #foo put: <something>
"... and then some time later ..."
data := controller snapshot.
The reason this may not work is that the message may not have been
executed when you do the snapshot (e.g., it may still be in transfer on
the wire). In general, you should prefix all snapshots with a "sync"
sync := island future yourself. "any message will do"
sync wait. "all messages up to sync have been executed"
This ensures that all the messages this participant has sent have been
executed before the snapshot (and consequently requires a network
