Finding the class represented by a Class instance

Well it's in k of course! So my real problem is that I want to trace 
Class object creation. But k->name()->as_C_string() crashes with a 
SIGSEGV. So I made this conditional on Universe::is_fully_initialized(), 
but it still crashes the first time I try to print the type name. It's 
crashing inside as_C_string but I haven't determined exactly where.

I was kind of surprised there wasn't an existing flag to print Class 
instance creations ... though now I'm wondering whether classloading 
tracing will show the info I want ...

Will try again tomorrow
