cool, now it translates again!

Btw., the reason to move to head of default was b/c my translated pypy-c was
crashing on the spot. The binary download of 1.5 and older locally translated
pypy's didn't do that.

Turns out there is something with my history file: the crash happens when it's
being loaded by readline:

Python 2.7.1 (9113640a83ac+8d950d4e5c98+, May 24 2011, 20:01:17)
[PyPy 1.5.0-alpha0 with GCC 4.4.1] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
using my private settings ...

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x08aae11c in pypy_g_OptHeap_emitting_operation ()

By playing a little, I find that the history file is problematic if it contains
1000 lines or more. Having 999 lines or less is fine either way.

Doesn't matter for me now that I know, but it's rather odd.
