If you rebind a symbol that is used as an area name i.e.
(make-area ':name 'foo)
and then later...
(setq foo something-other-than-the-area-number)
you will cause the gc process to blow out in

It seems to me that gc-reclaim-oldspace should have a better way to reference an area
then to depend on the symbol which is its name, to be bound to the area number. If
this cannot be fixed then a big moby caveat should be attached to make-area documentation
warning that area name symbols cannot be used for anything else...
