I have seen similar problems in due to the GC thread never entering, and
the heap expanding until memory exhaustion. Try to create many dummy
objects that implement IDisposable, and see if they get reclaimed. When
running the attached sample, I freeze the system and run out of memory.
No collection ever happens. 

Is GC disabled by default in mono?
