No, typeflow ends such a block with a "trap".  (If we bailed out on  
every unloaded class, we'd almost never compile anything.)  A trap is  
like a branch to the interpreter (deopt).  The parser is responsible  
for respecting those trap markings.  A basic block that ends in a  
trap never gets (in compiled code) to the branch or return that ends  
the basic block in the bytecodes.
