I ran into an error when starting a Pharo 1.2RC2 (build 119) image on Windows
XP. What I did was:
- on Mac OS X, create a new directory "Pharo-1.2-build119"
- copy the image, changes file, and sources file from the one-click app to
this directory
- started the image, saved it as "jniport20.image", and worked a bit with it
- started Windows XP under Parallels, opened an explorer on
- placed a link to squeak.exe in the directory which points to
  and has
  as the working directory
- dropped jniport20.image on the link.

The image starts okay, but immediately opens an error notifier with an
"Error: No content to install" in CodeLoader>>installSourceFile:. The
CodeLoader's sourceFiles instvar hold an Array(a HTTPDownloadRequest), where
the HTTPDownloadRequest has 
as its URL.

I have seen issue 3595 "problem starting up with a script on windows" which
has been closed, apparently because it was not considered a bug. However,
that seems to be something different involving startup scripts.

What am I doing wrong? Or is it a bug?
