add test for #1679

-- Test for #1679. If there's a GC during a foreign call, the
-- interpreter could sometimes crash, because it was using the old
-- pointer to the byte code instructions, which has now moved. The
-- tricky bit is allocating enough so that the old instructions are
-- overwritten, hence performGC followed by sum [1..100000].
