 1. As far as I can make out, start_arena_memory & end_arena_memory are
 never initialized before being used in alloc_objects (in dod.c).
 Consequently, there's no guarantee that they ever do get initialized
 properly, and hence any or all of pmc_min, pmc_max, buffer_min &
 buffer_max in trace_system_stack (also in dod.c) may contain garbage.

 2. In get_min_buffer_address (in header.c): shouldn't all of the
 references to end_arena_memory actually be to start_arena_memory ?
