 passes 10 MB. As Dietmar stated, the memory consumption is actually
 very high under Linux, is there some way to improve the garbage
 collector response so that it collects more often? 
 Thank you a lot for the attention.
 Best regards,

+I've done more tests and got these conclusions:
+1) mono runtime is killed because of lack of memory available (it
+consumes all the available memory). Taking a look at dmesg it shows
+several "alloc_failed" errors and the mono process is destroyed; my
+system is an Athlon 1.7 with 256 MB of RAM and a 256 MB swap;
+2) Under Windows 2000 Professional running MS .NET 1.1, the same
+sample in the same machine runs smooth and the memory consumption does
+not exceed 5 MB in any time. Please take a look for yourself. 
+Unfortunately the memory management in Mono is still *very* bad
+compared to MS implementation. Hope you are able to fix this soon.
+It's extremely bad in my opinion, that the same program takes 5 MB of
+RAM in a platform and no less than 256 MB in another.
+Thank you a lot for the attention.
