In mono-doc on Gtk.TreeView.GetCursor 
  in the remarks section, it says:

The returned path must be freed with TreePath.Free.

huh? I thought all these would be taken care of by the garbage collection, 
and I don't need to worry about freeing resources anymore.

What is happening here? Can someone enlight?
