Bug. It used to raise a hard error when you tried to add the same ivar. Now I was cleaning up the SourceFileArray, which is used
while accessing source: so removing an ivar *needs* duplication for a short overlap.
So I removed the hard error, which was wrong (it should have been a warning).

In Pharo3 with the new class builder this is fixed.
