[Pharo-dev] AnnouncementSubscription and Ephemerons

I only checked EphemeronTests and in my image they were all green. Now I've noticed that they are green 
because they are skipped and using Google I found


When I run

  Smalltalk supportsQueueingFinalization: true.

and run EphemeronTests again my VM just crashed.

This raises the question about the current status of Ephemerons?
