I noticed this bug is mentioned in the 3.9 release notes with a note similar to the title of the 4th PR: "garbage collection does not block on resurrected objects".

I can't see any mention of a blocking issue here on the issue:

> The bug:  the stats keep claiming gc is collecting an enormous number of objects, but in fact it's not collecting any.  Objects in the unreachable set shouldn't add to the "collected" count unless they _are_ collected.

Would someone be able to elaborate on the blocking issue that was fixed as part of this BPO?
