I don't think that ANSI says anything about that, but the behavior of
Pharo/Squeak is definitely a portability issue with other Smalltalk.
I've already fixed a few occurrences of this problem together with
Paolo a few months ago. Unfortunately this problem is kind of hard to
detect from Pharo and a new one must have creeped in.

So let me know where exactly the problem occurs and I can try to commit a fix.
