I know it's been 6 months, but I kinda gave up on Self back then. :)

But today I decided I really ought to try it out, since I'm designing Caper based on some of its ideas.

I followed this carefully, but I still get the same Self VM error: "i and stub zones overlap".  I'm using Self VM 4.1.10.

Is this your setup still?  Do I need an earlier Self version too?
