Rev 9846 fixed (or at least works around) this rare case where a GC runs during
the collection of a pattern bitmap.

The underlying cause may not yet be resolved since further analysis shows that
the gstate dev_color structure is incompletely traced. The c_ht pointer in the
'colors' union was not being relocated, and probably the pointers in the binary
part of the union, e.g. b_ht, are not traced and relocated either.

Reducing the priority to P3 as a clean-up issue and assigning to Ralph. I am
also changing the description since it is now just a concept that MAY lead to
a seg fault.

I am available to help track this if desired.
