Pretty sure this is a bug in the test, which is racing with GC of the wrapper.

Kind of awful that we have to think about wrappers like this. :-/ Is there no sane way to make sure that the wrapper hangs around? I can see us making this mistake fairly often, since it violates my expectations.

You can make the wrapper hang around by storing it in a global variable or property of something else; that has other dangers, though.
Perhaps the better answer is that if the object has classinfo, you don't have to mess with QI at all.
