Summary0032168: TInterfacedObject destructor reentrance bug
DescriptionI have found a bug in the TInterfacedObject.

Better than explaining is to examine and execute the code below.
When executing the code below the destructor of the class TCustomDestructorClass is called infinitely.
This is due to calling the procedure Foo inside the destructor of TCustomDestructorClass, whhich causes the _addRef and _Release methods to be called again. As the reference count reaches zero again, this triggers the calling of the destructor again e and so the cycle will repeat infinitely.

I think one solution would be the _Release method to check if the instance is already being destroyed before calling the destructor of the class (Destroy method). Currently the method only checks if the reference count reaches zero.

==== CODE BEGIN =========

program interfaced_object_error_2;


  { TCustomDeestructorClass }

  TCustomDestructorClass = class(TInterfacedObject)
    destructor Destroy; override;

  DestrcutorCount: Integer = 0;
  CustomRef: IInterface;

procedure Foo(Value: IInterface);
  if Value <> nil then

{ TCustomDeestructorClass }

destructor TCustomDestructorClass.Destroy;
  inherited Destroy;

  CustomRef := TCustomDestructorClass.Create;
  CustomRef := TCustomDestructorClass.Create; // Forces execution of destructor

Delphi 7 has the same bug.
Delphi 10.2, protected with "_RefCount or $80000000" after it is reset. Thus, a maximum of two DestructorCount or DestrcutorCount :)

That's correct (The D7 part), but come on.. Foo(Self);?? in this scenario is indeed infinite.
