 probably not a good idea to rely on finalizers to clean up things in 
 a server...

 After discussion with Gonzalo it seems better to fix this behaviour in
 SessionStateModule/SessionId (i.e. not to create so much RNG instances).

+What is being proposed will fix our problem for now. However, my 
+opinion would be to fix it in the unmanaged code to use a static 
+handle (in the Linux case). This way it is fixed for all clients 
+that use the rng object. Otherwise, this could creep up again, just 
+from a different object than SessionState.
