Crash in GetStringUTFChars running xalan on ppc32-aix and ppc64-aix



      This is the most common failure on both ppc32-aix and ppc64-aix. It seems to impact about 1 test every other run (ie, about 0.5 tests on average).

      ===== DaCapo xalan starting =====
      WARNING: attempt to get compiled method #0

      I suspect a problem is that if a GC happens at this program point we're making a mistake when interpreting the stackframes, but it's possible that there is some other problem (or that this is an indirect crash caused by the current known problems of Identity HashMaps in the bootimage).
