I don't think this is a bug. mono_field_static_get/set and
mono_field_get/set behave pretty much the same: Both require
that the ctor was already invoked. The former requires
mono_runtime_class_init () whereas the latter needs
mono_runtime_object_init () or an explicit non-default ctor

mono_field_get_value_object () is somewhat different because it
deals with both static and instance fields. It's more elaborated
(and slower), and serves different purposes (maybe it's used by 
System.Reflection, I did't check).
