In 10 years or so of writing squeak plugins, and doing VM changes I'll  
note the Squeak GC logic is
*extremely* efficient in finding corrupted memory. Even finding things  
like when you forget to provide
magic padding for a stack frame of a certain size on an FFI call and  
discovering that Apple's Quicktime programmers
exploited the fact there was four bytes of free space on the stack  
frame they could abuse.
