Summary 0004245: In 7041 ChangeSet 'Unnamed1' is still around with the postscript that loads the world.
Description To see this

Load a fresh 7041.
open a dual change sorter.

On the left is Unnamed1 and it is the current cs.
It has the Insidious postscript.*

On the right is Unnamed3.

*The reason it is an Insidious postscript is that unaware users write out changesets by renaming the default cs and
not realizing they are including the undelete postscript.

And frustrated luckless folks much later read in those same changes sets and will not understand why squeak starts to consume vast quantities of time update from the 3.9 repository.

(You don't need your time spent listening to the complaints so I've labeled this bug major..)

Additional Information Unnamed2 and Unnamed3 apparently have been generated by 7040
and 7041 respectively.

Apparently neither of them get marked as the current changeset. I don't understand why that is so, but it is not the important part of this problem.

From what I can tell you now have a method which writes out a changeset appropriately named ScriptLoader-sd.nnn.cs and then install it.
This as suggested creates the new change set sat the end.

This apparently is not what was needed.

Unnamed1 is left around from a previous install.
It needs to be deleted or destroyed and just one Unnamed change set needs to be left as the default.

So my suggestion is
Rename Unnamed1 to Unnamed.
Remove its postscript.
Continue to use the current proceedure
  to write out and install the scriptloader cs.

Yours in service, Jerome Peace

P.S. The way you are doing things now you probably don't need the final line that creates the new unnamed-n changeset. However, I change that the next pass not this one. Its a minor problem compared to the Insidious postscript.

Cheers -- Jer
