One more thing:

  os getcwd
with the default Self.app (via Droplet)
results in the path of the running image
(eg, '/Users/myname/self/')

whereas executing
  os getcwd
with the new app results in
which leads to the problem that the example
runScript-s do not work.

Either way, have the image dir as cwd seems reasonable,
but this, too, prevents from executing stuff like
  'applications/smalltalk/smalltalk.self' runScript
Or am I doing something stupid here?
