There's a new scheme for keeping track of which macptrs denote
known ObjC classes; the table that keeps track of them has to be
cleared and rebuilt every time a saved image that contains that
table is relaunched.

I checked in changes to "objc-runtime.lisp" and to
"process-objc-modules.lisp" that seem to fix this, and an unrelated
change to "cocoa-application.lisp" that prevents warnings about
(minor) memory leaks when the saved image tries to guess where
the "CCL" directory is during its initialization.

If people could verfity that the COCOA-APPLICATION demo at least
hasn't gotten any worse, I can try to package these changes in
a new source archive.
