Detect one class of invalid merges.

When merging two different EXPRs, we are currently merging some trees
that should not be merged.  This patch tries to identify one case
where we can certainly detect that a bad merge is about to happen.

This fixes no tests, but diagnoses quite a few bad merges in our
internal testing.  Lawrence will be producing test cases for those.

        * pph-in.c (pph_in_merge_key_tree_with_searcher): Detect and
        diagnose attempts to merge two distinct trees from the same
        PPH image.
