I also talked with Tom about this issue and the problem with arg_slot()
is that it's for interpreter frames.  Looking at arg_slot() it uses
arg_offset() to calculate the offset:

  // base+st_off points to top of argument
  int arg_offset(const int st_off) { return st_off +
Interpreter::value_offset_in_bytes(); }

And this seems wrong when storing the arguments for the compiled frame.
