Hi Nick,

I think we also need a barrier in `GraphBuilder::access_field` when loading from a flattened field and in `GraphBuilder::load_indexed` (the initialization code is emitted in `LIRGenerator::access_flattened_array`) when loading from a flattened array.

It would be good to have tests that triggers this.

Best regards,
