Moving at the Speed of Change
The issue with mono_debugger_add_type is with the following lines (from
memory, since I am on a different machine):

* ((gpointer*) ptr) = klass;

Write_leb can move the pointer to an offset that is not on a pointer
boundary and the SPARC architecture does not allow a pointer to be
written on an odd boundary (or word boundaries that are not also long
boundaries, ie pointer % 4 != 0...actually, it probably even pointer % 8
!= 0 for 64-bit).  I've change the code to behave as though they were
two guint8* (which is convenient, since one is defined that way) and
loop through the data.  I do not know what the data is used for, I am
unsure that that is appropriate.
