Summary: Only fetch Node::next once and use that result.

A racing thread could NULL next->next()->next().  The Node itself is 
stable until the write_synchronize() but the pointers may be updated.  
See bug for more detail.

Tested with SymbolTable changes and tests that failed.  Also tested with 
mach5 hs-tier1-5 (in progress).

This is actually Robbin's fix, and my review is that it looks good.
