Defunct stub errors occur under VA

Under VisualAge Smalltalk GBS applications, generally in runtime
applications under heavy use, it's possible to get unfounded defunct
stub errors.  These are intermittant timing related problems,
relating to the combination of the way VA handles weak dictionaries,
signal handling, and other factors.

The occurrence of these errors has been greatly reduced in GBS
versions 5.2 and later.
