[kaffe] x86 JIT bug

This dies with a NullPointerException with jit3 on x86, but it works with the interpreter.

I'll look deeper tomorrow, but if anybody else wants to take a shot at
it, be my guest.  

In case you're curious, it's from inside ant.  It's preventing
avalon-logkit from compiling inside the Jakarta Gump regression test I'm
trying to build.
