I recommend that you try to use the validator:

  (MetacelloToolBox validateConfiguration: ConfigurationOfFilesystem)

The validator should complain about using #'1.0.2' or '1.0.2' incorrectly. If the issue printString isn't enough you should be able to get more info from the #reasonCode:

  MetacelloToolBox descriptionForValidationReasonCode: <reasonCode from validation issue>

If the validator doesn't provide a good enough explanation, I'm interested in improving it. 

If you run into a problem when you reconstruct the configuration and the validator doesn't give you good information, then please feel free to ship me a copy of the configuration so I can be the human validator - which in turn will spur me on to improve the validator:)

I extend this invitation to anyone having trouble with Metacello.
