This should be better. Will do.

Since the physical objects are only used as gray objects.
Changes on irrelevant places will be removed.

The leak check could be taken on physical objects. Conversion
of block address from virtual to physical before lookup should
make this work (this is useless currently). I think we'd better
know about this.
