Are you using v208, or something earlier?

Before v208, I'm pretty sure that the conservative GC didn't
automatically find all static variables in OS X, and that could cause
MzScheme to crash.

I thought that when we upgraded the GC in v208, the problem would be
fixed, but I didn't specifically check.
