Issue #649 has been updated by Yusuke Endoh.

Status changed from Open to Rejected

Hi,

I close the ticket because this is not a bug.
MRI's GC is not exact.  In other words, MRI does not guarantee
that an object is collected as soon as it becomes unreachable.

As matz said, the symptom can be decreased by some improvement
(such as MBARI patch), but cannot be eradicated as long as MRI
uses conservative GC.


If you want MRI to import MBARI patch, please register Feature
ticket into ruby 1.8 subproject.

Advice: a big patch will not be accepted.  It would be good to
separate into small patches each of which has one feature or
optimization.
