Summary0004742: Ocaml disables finalisation functions after an exception occured in one finalisation function call.
DescriptionIf one value has an attached finalisation function, which raises an exception,
the user has to supply a manual 'Gc.finalise_release ()' call to reactivate
further processing of finalisation functions. A suggestion for a solution is
supplied as comment in the uploaded Ocaml file.

Instead of the solution you propose, we probably will ignore exceptions raised from finalisation functions (just as we ignore the return values).

This probably won't be fixed before version 3.12.0.

Note to self: don't ignore exceptions, it prevents people from interrupting the main program when the heap gets too large.
