Last night I had an vm crash as I was working on TK4, this is an
unusual event so I'll bring it to everyone's attention. I recall I
clicked on the squeak desktop and everything
went away... This afternoon I'm still working with the image in
question without issues. Lately we added some changes by Andreas for
correct weak array handling, some changes to how become: works, and my
work in VM GC statistical data, so I cann't say which is at fault, if
In looking I found that my 3.8.7b5 VM had crashed in
updatePointersinRangeFromto() at 21777 via calling from
21776 fieldOop = longAt(oop + fieldOffset);
21777 if (((fieldOop & 1) == 0) && (((longAt(fieldOop)) & MarkBit) !=

Binary Images Description:
0x1000 - 0xebfff org.squeak.Squeak Squeak VM 3.8.7b5
3.8.7Beta5.app/Contents/MacOS/Squeak VM Opt
Changes leading up to this VM are:
3.8.7b5 Fix logic to allow you to start VM from command line, changed
sqMacFileLogic.c makeHFSFromPosixPath added to convert posix cmd
line path names to HFS
sqMacMain.c add logic to call cmd line parser
sqMacUnixCommandLineInterface.c new file logic to parse cmd line
sqMacWindow.c minor changes to correct compiler errors
3.8.7b4/b3 Limited release for testing
3.8.7b2 sqUIEvents.c changed keyUp/keyDown to supply mac virtual
keycode versus unicode, added new parm to keyChar to supply UTF-32
As per Andreas request for Tweak.
3.8.7b1 sqUIEvents.c changed keyUp/keyDown logic to match Windows
pattern, key repeat becomes keyDown/keyDown/keyUp
3.8.6b6 sqMacMIDI.c add #def so I can compile under code warrior os-9
sqMacEncoding.c, sqMacEncoding.h Minor changes so I can compile
user code warrior os-9 again
sqMacUnixInterfaceSound.c Fix problem with empty buffer being full
of junk under certain conditions, that causes a sharp sound bite.
3.8.6b5 Change to JMM & AR GC instrumentation patch, collect a few
less statistics. Also change carbon VM to use Unix/Quartz sound driver
which interfaces to Core Audio stuff.
3.8.6b4 Ensure VMMaker 3.8b2 - the VM code classes and tools for
building a working vm for Squeak version > 3.8-6461. is incorporated.
Add Andreas's GC improvement changes for
* primitiveIsYoung: This answers the question whether an object
currently lives in young or in old space.
* primitiveIsRoot: Answers the question whether any given object is
currently a root for young space.
* primitiveRootTable: Answers a snapshot of the current root table.
Useful to examine the roots table if the analysis requires complex
other operations during which the root table might be modified itself.
Note that since this primitive can cause GC there is a small chance
that it will give an inaccurate answer.
* primitiveRootTableAt: Answers a single element of the root table
(by one-based index). This primitive can be used to quickly scan the
root table for certain objects.
* primitiveSetGCSemaphore: Indicates a semaphore (index) to be
signaled whenever a garbage collection occurs. I can see at least two
uses uses for the GC semaphore: running cleanup actions (for example
after full GCs occured) and dynamic parameter tuning for the GC
Add John's changes for
Smalltalk setGCBiasToGrowGCLimit: 16*1024*1024. "Set growth limit
before full GC to 16MB"
Smalltalk setGCBiasToGrow: 1.
Set bias to grow upto GCLimit, this can avoid a problem where we
attempt to avoid growing but results in thousands of incremental GC
we approach a knee in a curve of space used versus the
3.8.6b3 Add in logic for become: to fix issues with changes to
3.8.6b2 sqMacWindow.c reduce number of lock/unlock pixel events and
flush no more than 91 fps, with flush check every 1/50 or 1/60 and 1/5
of a second. this
shaves another 50% off making drawing pixels 1.3% of the time
3.8.6b1 sqMacWindow.c, sqUIEvents.c, changed logic to flush screen
every 125 fps, this makes pixel level drawing complete in 2% of the
time originally taken.
3.8.5b1 Fix issue with gnuify. The offical gnu header file used a
different #ifdef for the foo register than an altered gnu header file I
was using for
many years. This resulted in slower performance, which is fixed in
3.8.4b3 Support for GC statistical data and change to how memory is
allocated and tenured.
Additional statistical information from the GC routines
Additional primitives to set GC semaphore, and to force a tenure
Change to make forward logic to look for "foo become: foo" and
cause a prim failure.
Earlier version of 3.8.4 where distributed to Ffenstri testers.
sqMacHostWindow Change calls to move and size window to use
GUILocker callbacks to avoid VM crash.
sqMacWIndow.c Alter 1/2/4 bit support to pass in bit size of
target window, then copy is more efficient.
3.8.3b3 Support for Host menus and windows. Also added back 1bit
(B/W) and 2bit & 4bit color as requested by Dan Ingalls for os-x
Earlier versions of 3.8.0/1/2/3 were distributed to the TK4 team,
not the public.
sq.h Added events, EventTypeMenu, EventTypeWindow to handle menu
and window events generated by the Host OS
and placed on the Squeak Event Queue to be read by EventSensor
sqGnu.h Switch to the current file used by Ian for Unix, versus
older modified copy.
sqMacExternalPrims.c Cleanup of warning message
sqMacImageIO.c When you set the image name, we set the title on
sqMacMain.c Do not create the main window until we actually use
sqMacNSPlugin.c Always refer to window 1, not sure what it means
to have other windows in the plugin yet...
Pass cmd-key menu activity up
Pass update event bounding box window events up
Pass window activate events up
Pass menu interaction activity up
Pass window events, resize,zoom,close,move,inconize up
Same as above
getUIToLock needs to ReleaseEvent on the passed in event for
sqMacUIMenuBar.c disable edit menu at start, if later we find it
enabled, don't touch, otherwise handle os-9 DA issues.
sqmacWindow.c sqShowWindow now gets a windowIndex parm.
ioShowDisplayOnWindow is added, with logic to build main
window at first draw time,
also fix some boundary checks, and provide support (again) for
1/2/4 bit color under os-x ioHasDisplayDepth() will return true
for 1/2/4/8/16/32 bit color

I'm currently hip-deep in similar excrement after merging in the new lowspace-
process handling and the gc instrumentation/weak pointer stuff. It _looks_ as
if something is getting twisted in the general gc area since the free block
size ends up being set to 4. As in '4' not 4k or 4mb, just 4. That quite
unsurprisingly upsets the sufficientSpaceToAllocate: code and we get an Earth-
shattering kaboom. Once my head has stopped spinning I'll try the lowspace
changes without the gc changes.
All to try to make it possible to debug some stupid problem in TK4 tree
