    OK, the comment makes this clear that it is because of race condition. Not sure what kind
of race conditions? Also, I believe my comment still holds that this means, as long as a region
exists, we will never delete its entries here. Do we really have to keep a record of a region's
existence for every single pruneInterval since the beginning of time? That can be a lot of
records over time.
