[Mono-dev] Static Variables

Seeing the mono_class_static_field_address function, I assumed that there 
might be an initial lookup for the address, even if the value itself was 
assigned directly later on.  Is this not true?  Perhaps even the lookup 
happens in a direct manner in the jit machine? 

I will try and produce a small test case.  It's a sizeable chunk of code, 
but hopefully a small test case will produce the same results. 

I'm happy to insert debugging code if desired on my system as well, though I 
realize that it's not particularly easy to work that way.
