Okay, this issue is just that ie/firefox are using an activation rather than a
real object (which contradicts the specs, but hey) -- I say we match their
behaviour.  Not only does it help compatibility (in a bizarre edge case at
least) but it makes it possible to actually optimise in a catch block,
something that was not technically possible before.

Possibly worth test the behaviour of this as well though
try {
  throw foo;
} catch(e) {
  with ({}) {
    print(x) // Should print "global.x"
    print(x) // Should add x to e
              // (Both IE and Firefox modify the global x)
