[Glass] Install problem

I just ran a GsDevKit_seaside31/bin/installServerSeaside build that 
completed successfully, so I'm guessing that my patches to Metacello 
were sufficient to get past the pattern matching problem you are 
experiencing ... the pattern matching tests are still failing, but 
perhaps I was closer than I thought:) ... at this point I will take a 
closer look at fixing Metacello and I should be able to publish a new 
version later today.
