I have a new version of my fix for the WeakReference leak in the

McManus, Jeremy Manson and Tony Printezis for their insights on using
ReferenceQueues. Here's a pointer to Tony's paper for background info:
This version also has limits on the number of dead Loggers that are
cleaned up per call; thanks to Alan Bateman for politely pushing me in
The webrev is again relative to OpenJDK7, but the bug is escalated so
the fix will be backported to the JDK6-Update train. So again, I'll
need a minimum of two code reviewers.
Here is the URL for the webrev:
Thanks, in advance, for any reviews.
