Please send them.  I wanted to confirm the presence of the
intergenerational pointer.

It would also be worth adding a print statement to make sure that the
card mark in maybeSharePointer actually ran.

To speed up testing, perhaps it would be worth running with -debug
false, but explicitly add after the share a call to the GC and then to
the GC invariant (you will need a new import for this).
