That sounds definitely wrong. What's happening OTOH is that the 
GC needs a TypeInfo pointer at the end of each allocated block 
*if* the allocated struct needs to be destructed later on, when 
releasing a page. It's the only type info it has at that point, 
and the TypeInfo knows how to destruct its instances.
