My thinking was simply that it sounds like it will require
reimplementation of the GC, and that's not likely to happen any time
soon, or perhaps ever.
Looking over the debbugs docs again, though, it should probably be
changed to wishlist, as Eli suggested originally. Like you say, a crash
is surely a bug, even if it is hard to fix.
FWIW I found a 'real-world' bug report, bug#16039, which appears to have
the same cause, although it requires a different remedy.
