Hi Roland,

actually, I've already pushed this. However before that, I ran modified 
'types/correctness/CorrectnessTest.java' to check the case similar to 
the one which you described : w/ the extra thread which calls 
WB.ClearMethodState in the loop. And I didn't get any failures, so it 
looks like it's safe.

if we bump into problem w/ that, I'll return VM operation.
