Confirmed, with 
export GC_DONT_GC=1
everything goes fine

Probably, the svn version (which is failing) got quite much new stuff.

With this code everything seems to work fine, but it prints out a large chunk 
of types.
When I commented out `return` the trace is:

typed alloc disabled for .MethodInfo
typed alloc disabled for System.Reflection.MonoField
typed alloc disabled for .Locale
typed alloc disabled for System.Diagnostics.StackTrace
typed alloc disabled for System.Diagnostics.StackFrame
typed alloc disabled for System.Security.Permissions.FileIOPermission
typed alloc disabled for System.Security.CodeAccessPermission
typed alloc disabled for System.Security.SecurityManager
typed alloc disabled for System.Security.Permissions.SecurityPermission

typed alloc disabled for Nemerle.Compiler.BailOutException

Hmm, so should I increase the 58 value to the point where it stops printing 
anything? Or to the point where is may print something, but stop/start 

Is there a way to omit 'make install' stage when testing? Ideally I would like 
to only build mono runtime, point my configuration to use newly builded 
'mono' and test things. Which directory should I use?
