Check to make sure that you haven't killed off the WeakArray finalization 

Open a Process Browser from the World/debug menu, and make sure you see it.

If not, try

	WeakArray initialize

It's easy to interrupt and kill this process with the Alt-. keystroke, and 
there's no check for it at startup time.

I think that WeakArray's startUp: method should probably restart the process.

Stay tuned for a fix.
