Hi all,

Please review patch (9 lines changed: 6 ins; 3 del; 0 mod)

CommandLineFlags::ccstrAtPut copies a value and expects that caller will 
free the memory of the old value by itslef, but in jmm_SetVMGlobal, it 
doesn't do.

Free the old value in SetVMGlobal.
The contracts of ccstrAtPut were moved to h-files.
