Would it be possible for you to build a VM with UUIDPlugin compiled
internally, building it on the same machine that you normally use,
and give it to Philippe to test? If it works, then the information
on http://bugs.squeak.org/view.php?id=7358 is probably valid for
Cog as well as for the regular VM. If it does not work, then there
is more to the problem and I'll reopen the issue on Mantis.

As far as I know, there have been no reports of libuuid failures on
the Unix VMs since Ian changed to using an internal UUIDPlugin, so
this is an easy fix if it works for Cog also.
