For some reason, Ned's original [FIX] does not seem to have made it to
the BFAV list. I have attached a copy of his change set, and here is
the message that he originally posted:


This prevents the potentially serious consequences of killing off the
WeakArray finalization process.
Please review this soon!

from preamble:

"Change Set:            EnsureEssentialProcesses-nk
Date:                   21 June 2004
Author:                 Ned Konz

It's possible to kill off the WeakArray finalization process, and it
never gets restarted.

This can cause many hard-to-diagnose problems.

This change set ensures that the WeakArray finalization process is
started at every start up.

It also shuts down the EventSensor's interruptWatcherProcess and
eventTicklerProcess at shutdown time (and starts them at startUp time,
of course).
