[Openmcl-devel] trunk bootstrapping

A pending change in the trunk exposes a previously harmless bug in the x8632
compiler backend.  I'll check in that change in a few minutes and
will try to check in updated heap images in the next hour or two.

Please remember that svn doesn't ordinarily overwrite conflicting binary files
and that you'll need to use a newer image to bootstrap the pending change.

(The x8664 compiler backend has the same "previously harmless" bug, but the
change doesn't affect bootstrapping.  I don't think that the ARM or PPC are
affected in a way that'd affect bootstrapping; if there are other similar
previously harmless bugs ... well, that's why we have the trunk.)
