Hi all,

I'm not sure if I'm not supposed to do the following (the dyn.unload
part, I mean) or this could be a bug (in R or Rcpp):

  #include <Rcpp.h>
  class Object {};
  SEXP new_object() {
    return Rcpp::XPtr<Object>(new Object());

dyn.unload(list.files(tempdir(), ".(so|dll)$", recursive=TRUE, full.names=TRUE))
gc() # segfault in R_RunWeakRefFinalizer

message("This is not printed")

This is the backtrace I get with R 3.5.1:

Any ideas?
