Oh.. I understand what you mean now. My patch is not right and cannot fix this issue.

By default, the debugobjects warning sometimes occurs after five minutes, and sometimes occurs after twenty hours. With this patch, I test more than fifty hours, and warning did not occurs. It shows that my test time is not long enough and miss the right one.


I have updated PATCH v2, please review again. Thanks.
