[Gc] Re-register an object for finalization after it has been

I've just started venturing into BoehmGC.
This is for a C#-like language, so all the object finalizers are registered with
However, it is possible that the user's finalizer routine assigns its 'this'
pointer to a globally accessible pointer var, thus making it accessible again
(e.g. see C#'s GC.ReRegisterForFinalize example) -- i.e. a resurrection.
The user's finalizer routine then registers this object for a second finalization
via GC_register_finalizer_no_order. However, this does not ever get triggered.
I've checked and made sure java_finalization is true.
Any help appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
