can you open a bug entry.
Now I can tell you that the launcher is one of the most complex
application built in Pharo because
it has to adapt to multiple OS, multiple version of OS, multiple
versions of the images and the VM.
For example we discover that we cannot open certain pharo 30 image
with the pharo 30 vm but
better with a pharo 40 vm.
