This thread is storing a reference to an object 0x0000000000d32620 at address 
0x00007fff7be0d628.
It has acquired the weak table lock, and is now modifying the metadata for the 
weak reference.  It should be safe to dereference ref, because we’ve already 
done a check that it’s not null, and this table is only modified with the lock 
held.

The -release method should have called objc_delete_weak_refs, which will have 
cleared all weak pointers, while holding the lock held.  Weak pointers are 
materialised only while holding the lock.
