+It is not solvable in the short term.
+Our GC engine is conservative non-moving, while the Microsoft one
+is a moving GC which can compact the heap when pieces become unused.
+It is our plan to address this issue in the long term, but in the
+short term (Mono 1.2) this will not be solved.
+This means that Mono has the same problems than an equivalent C or
+C++ application would (as they do not have compatcing memory 
+management units either), so you must take the same care that you
+would with C or C++ when dealing with heap fragmentation.
