That sounds like a reasonable assessment, and it's good news that it seems 
to work. However, I believe there are one or two corner cases in the garbage 
collection code, which should almost never actually get triggered, in which 
it's not quite sufficient. So I'm unhappy about reducing it in the general 
case until I can prove that it's safe.
