Hmmmm. That's interesting. it was regtested when it was first submitted,
and bootstrapped with GCAC on.  If your patch causes afilurse, something
is broken.
Cookie checking usually helps when things break.

I never tested the PCH support beyond trivial PCH's (i did, however, test
it trivially on some simple PCH cases) for the zone collector, which has
to do it slightly differently.

Libstdc++ pch using wasn't working at the time, so i had no easy way to

I'm happy to look at PCH related problems for gc-zone (which i'm sure
exist, i'm not arrogant enough to believe i got it completely righ the
first time :P)
