The solution is to clear the corresponding entry in the weak table
manually in the __gc metamethod right before you decrease the reference
count, i. e. your __gc should look like that:

int gc(lua_State* L)
    Object* obj = *(Object**)lua_touserdata(L, 1);
    lua_getfield(L, LUA_REGISTRYINDEX, "map");
    lua_pushlightuserdata(L, obj);
    lua_rawset(L, -3);
    lua_pop(L, 1);

    return 0;
