I am not sure this is a good thing.  It's true that Smalltalk is never
serialized, so in theory it does not need any rehashing but given that
growing could be implemented in terms of rehashing (or vice versa, rehash
could be "self growBy: 0") I prefer to leave the functionality in.  And
anyway the bug is there, because if an object overrides #copy it risks
breaking rehashing.
