Hi Maximiliano, I finally managed to reproduce your situation, using get.pharo.org/70+vm on Linux (Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS, 64bit using a 32bit VM).
Indeed the second time the image comes up blank. It does however still work (I had a running server in it and I could access it via the browser). You can also interrupt Pharo (ctrl-.) and the debugger shows the process is blocked at the 'wait wait' in the following method: SessionManager>>#snapshot: save andQuit: quit | isImageStarting wait | "We do the snapshot in a separate process in maximum priority to have always a clean startup. This process will be interrupted by the fork, and will be resumed as soon as the snapshot finishes. We synchronize these processes in case both are in the same priority. When both arguments are false, do nothing and return false." (save or: [quit]) ifFalse: [ ^ false ]. wait := Semaphore new. [ isImageStarting := self launchSnapshot: save andQuit: quit. wait signal ] forkAt: Processor highestPriority. wait wait. ^ isImageStarting Now, the underlying error is ZnCrPortableWriteStream that disappeared and is used by the command line handlers. It seems the latest Zinc (as loaded by Seaside) does not yet contain this class. I'll check and come back.
