As pointed out by others, as we don't know what's in the memory, this
wouldn't really work. This kind of bugs should be caught by
DEBUG_OBJECTS_WORK / DEBUG_OBJECTS_TIMERS, I think. It's not perfect as
those aren't usually turned on but catching this sort of errors does need
tracking some information out of band.

Thanks.
