Hi Tom,

by incidence I've just found this problem while playing around with
the Arena memory allocation in HS14. Now that I saw your change I'm
confident that I've also done the right fix myself :)

There's just one question I have regarding your solution: isn't
"CodeBuffer::take_over_code_from()" a problem here, because it copies
"_overflow_arena" from one CodeBuffer into another one. I think this
may potentially lead to a double delete of the same Arena. Or isn't
this possible logically. Perhaps it would be more secure to add
another line like:

  DEBUG_ONLY(cb->_overflow_arena = (BufferBlob*)badAddress);

to "CodeBuffer::take_over_code_from()" or even better set
"_overflow_arena" to NULL after it was copied?

What do you think?
