Which traversal? Since mono_class_vtable () is called on
field's declaring class, the returned vtable will be always

However, IIRC there are some corner cases where

	mono_runtime_class_init (vtable);

has to be previously invoked, otherwise the involved .cctors won't
be called (or they will be called lately, overriding the values set
with mono_field_static_set_value ()).

Could you please provide a test case for your problem?
