> The size of the weak set keeps growing, even when GC happens.

Commit 02e3dc6ab95fe51786b68a8200322e163f8da478 mostly addresses it:

It turns out that the core issue is that ‘vacuum_all_weak_sets’ is only
ever called a couple of times at the beginning of the execution, and
that’s it.

So it seems that the trick of ‘scm_i_register_async_gc_callback’ no
longer works as expected.


Incidentally, in the reproducer I posted, if you insert (gc) after
(create-symbols), then the weak set grows a bit more!  Which makes me
wonder if we’re not leaking entries due to messed up disappearing links
or something.
