+like our code is doing something stupid. In particular, we assumed 
+that C# would give us the same guarantees as Java for finalizers, 
+but I since found out that this isn't the case. The upshot is that 
+it is likely that finalizers in our code end up calling into 
+something that's been finalized already. I suspect that this is at 
+the root of the problem. It seems likely that exceptions get thrown 
+when one of these finalizers does something stupid. Hopefully, this 
+will be of some use to you.
