Following the recommendation Andrew made just prior to your post, I
googled as suggested and found the following link on the first page of
results:

http://www.scribd.com/doc/27174770/Garbage-Collection-and-the-Ruby-Heap

I'm not sure how accurate it is, but it looks pretty good and may give
you more depth of understanding than you may already have.  There are
plenty of other hits for that search, so you should give it a try. :-)
