+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: Garbage collector doesn't release memory 
+Description of Problem:
+The garbage collector does not release unused memory to the operating
+system. If many objects are used simultanously the memory usage of the Mono
+process stays at it's peak value.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Compile the attached sample
+2. Run it
+3. See GC heap size and process memory consumption
+Actual Results:
+Memory consumption is still high after collecting all objects.
+Expected Results:
+Memory consumption should go down significantly.
+How often does this happen?
