Not sure if this is intentional or not but Stream.Dispose() does not call
GC.SuppressFinalize which is different from .NET. I noticed that classes like
CryptoStream have their own workarounds (look at CryptoStream.Clear). 

Our application make heavy use of Streams and we depend on the Stream class to
call GC.SuppressFinalize for us. I suspect there are others in this category.
