ObjectDisposedException: The object was used after being disposed

We are using Unity Performance Reporting, and are getting these errors logged quite often:

ObjectDisposedException: The object was used after being disposed.

System.Threading.WaitHandle.WaitOne (Int32 millisecondsTimeout, Boolean exitContext)
System.Threading.EventWaitHandle.Reset ()
Pathfinding.RVO.Simulator+Worker.Execute (Int32 task)
Pathfinding.RVO.Simulator.OnDestroy ()
Pathfinding.RVO.Simulator.Finalize ()
UnityEngine.UnhandledExceptionHandler:HandleUnhandledException(Object, UnhandledExceptionEventArgs)

I think this is also causing a native hard crash that we’ve been seeing, but the stack trace really is unusable. I suspect this because the native crash appears to be threading-related, and AFAIK A* is the only place where threads are used in our game.

EDIT: It’s actually very revealing, you can see the connection between the stack trace above and this one (Simulator_OnDestroy, Simulator_Finalize):

Any ideas on what might be causing this? This appears to happen when switching scenes.

Note: This happened on an iPad Pro 10.5" with iOS 10.3.3.


That’s interesting. I have never seen that before.

From what I can tell, this seems to be a bug in the il2cpp compiler/runtime. My code never disposes the wait handle, so it must have been done by it being garbage collected or something like that. However that should (afaik) not happen if an object with a finalizer can still reach it (which is the case here).

In any case the finalizer is only a safeguard in case one was using an RVO simulator without using the Unity component wrapper for it. You should be able to safely remove it. Find this code in the RVOCoreSimulator.cs script and remove it:

/** Terminates any worker threads */
~Simulator () {

Let me know if this resolves the issue.
