MPS issue job001676

TitleAMC does not implement weakness in emergency fixing.
Assigned userRichard Brooksby
DescriptionAMC does not implement weakness in emergency fixing.

This is really a special case of job001666, "No guarantee that all weak
references to an object die together", but the problem can also
manifest as weak references not being splatted when they reasonably
could have been.

The problem is that in emergency fixing mode AMC will not splat weak
references even when it would be correct to do so. Ironically this may
result in more memory being used than is necessary.
AnalysisAMCFixEmergency needs to pay more attention to weakness.
