Thanks for the suggestion, I think it should work, I will update the patch  as you suggested.

In fact, I have this question in my mind for a while, **this is not related to evac failed obj**. If an obj A in young region has the ONLY reference to obj B in optional set (but not in current cset), where this refering relationship is recorded after the young is evaced to survirvor regions? I guessed it's recorded by other "dead" old obj, as in remset there is no reference from young to old.
