   A fixed-address image is not only fixed with respect to its base
   address, but also with respect to certain addresses in the gforth
   executable and the threading method. These things are encoded in a
   checksum.
   
   If the checksum of the executable and the checksum of the image are
   not equal, you get the message above. This can be caused, e.g., by
   trying to run an image produced for a direct threading system on an
   indirect threaded system.
   
   Chances are that you unintentionally tried to execute an image from
   the wrong directory. As a remedy, you can determine Gforth's search
   path with the "-p" command line option and with the GFORTHPATH
   environment variable.
   
   On the other hand, if you need to solve the problem by creating a new
   fixed-address image, you can use the steps described above.
