Set a watchpoint.

Thanks, I've used that (and 'info symbol') to search for a couple more sources of nondeterminism. So far I've found:
- various jmp_buf objects; these can most likely be zeroed out before dumping
- gl_state; could also be zeroed
- consing_since_gc; Fdump_emacs could just call Fgarbage_collect to reset it (though I'm wondering why this difference exists; AFAIK the garbage collector should be pretty deterministic)
