My first guess would be something other than the GC. When I was
working on the string_join fix this afternoon, a couple of my interim
versions had refcount problems that lead to core dumps in the garbage
collector. The GC catches lots of memory problems because it's
touching all the objects; that doesn't mean its to blame for all those
Which leads me to ask, Barry, did you run purify on an interpreter
with the latest stringobject.c?
