[SV 45728] Detect changes in .VARIABLES more accurately.
For performance, we only recompute .VARIABLES when (a) it's expanded
and (b) when its value will change from a previous expansion. To
determine (b) we were checking the number of entries in the hash
table which used to work until we started undefining entries: now if
you undefine and redefine the same number of entries in between
expanding .VARIABLES, it doesn't detect any change. Instead, keep
an increasing change number.
* variables.c: Add variable_changenum.
(define_variable_in_set, merge_variable_sets): Increment
variable_changenum if adding a new variable to the global set.
(undefine_variable_in_set): Increment variable_changenum if
undefining a variable from the global set.
(lookup_special_var): Test variable_changenum not the hash table.
* tests/scripts/variables/special: Test undefining variables.
