Bug 39216

GemBuilder for Smalltalk/VW

7.2.2, 7.2.1, 7.2


GemStone System Workspace windows don't close properly

If you open a GemStone System Workspace window and close it, then save the image and restart it, the restarted image will show a GemStone System Workspace without contents. This is because the window was essentially opened twice when it was first opened. Unfortunately, this "zombie" window is very difficult to close and will exist for the life of the image.


It is difficult to salvage an image after this bug has occurred. But it is possible to prevent it.

Modify VisualLauncher>>#gbxOpenSystemWorkspace and remove the line:

bldr openAt: Screen default bounds center.
