I've checked this change in.  I still think a pass needs to be made
through the pc manipulation code (as Tim Stack pointed out in
subsequent mails) to remove various bogus -1s.  However, the patch
fixes a problem that is annoying the nightly regression tests.

I also added a new test case 'CatchLimits.class.save'.  This is
compiled from 'CatchLimits.j' which is a Jasmin bytecode assembler
file.  It tests throws at the limits of exception ranges (just before
and just after the start/end).  The test passes in all builds of Kaffe
now (and it failed in the interpreter builds), so I've got a bit more
confidence in this fix.

Hopefully the nightly regression tests will start being more useful
(and more prompt) now.
