[GemStone-Smalltalk] #asInteger truncates instead of rounding

We are also working with VisualWorks who is also truncating.
Of course we'd prefer to have the same behavior in both dialects but we 
could also reimplement the new method to the old behavior.
We'd like to ask however if you could make sure that the system classes 
aren't  going to rely on it...

Best Regards,
