Posting to Pharos-dev or Vm Dev may find you more assistance.

My suggestions would be: a) upgrade to Pharo 5 and b) run in gdb so we all can be better informed about the issue you are seeing. Is PhaROS doing low level calls?

The VM crashes after a random amount of time (< 25 minutes), with no clear sequence of steps on how to reproduce the crash. I am using Pharo 4 (Pharo 40622 as installed by PhaROS) + Roassal which required an install of libcairo2:i386 . VM version details below.
