Besides uncovering new CTW bugs, I think there's a risk in initializing CTW classes eagerly:  It might cause CTW to give up on processing a class C if its referent D fails to initialize.  This could reduce coverage, since perhaps C used to load and get compiled, where now D's failed initialization will cause C to be skipped.

I suggest adding a print statement to the path where D's initialization fails, so we can track whether coverage gets reduced.
