Gem crash with nested blocks containing Array constructors

When Array Constructors { } are used within several levels of block testing/conditional/iteration, it can result in a Gem crash, due to a bug in native code generation.

In most versions, this results in an endless loop in
  INVALIDcodePtr

and the Gem must be killed using kill -9.

Workaround

Workaround is to configure the gems and topaz -l with
  GEM_NATIVE_CODE_ENABLED=0;

The problem does not occur when creating Arrays using (Array with: obj), rather than { obj }.
