Try this expression on a mirror of the object you are interested in (I 
got one with "reflect: list copy" to do some experiments on):

 ((slotsInMeAndAncestorsUpTo: self)
    copyMappedBy: [ | :m | m name ]) asSet

This was executed in the mirror on the list and the expression in the 
first list returned a list with 705 elements, which 'asSet' reduced to 
680 since the first expression had also returned ancestor slots that 
were overridden.
