Oh, that's weird.  These two patches aren't closely related to each
other.  This means the bug might be somewhere else entirely, or both of
these commits might be introducing bugs.

It is possible that 4e39b7e608e5bb09624c0b455561c73700e6f24f exposes a
bug previously in the codebase.

Will you please try to revert only
4c541b32c3a02a1fc4981879359307d273c9b9ca (since it's to be reverted
anyway and we're not interested in possible bugs in it) and build with
ASan, then run jtrts on that binary?  We need to debug
4e39b7e608e5bb09624c0b455561c73700e6f24f or find whatever bug it might
have exposed.

Thanks,

Alexander
