GC does not collect UIViewController in certain cases (Case 2)
1) When UIViewController adds a UIButton to a Navigation Bar View with Event
inside the UIViewController 
2) this happens even if you try to remove the Event Handler using -= method on
the event handler

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create aUIViewController 
2. Push a UIViewController into thos Navigation Bar
3. Have the UIViewController  add a UIButton in the View of the
4. Add Event to the UIButton inside UIViewController 
4. Set the UIViewController to null 
5. the UIViewController destruct-er  is never called
6. This happens even if you remove the Event Handler using -= approach 
is called normally and GC Collection is fine 
Actual Results:  
Memory for the UIViewController is never released causing memory leaks and
frequent application kill by iOS 

Expected Results:  
GC Collection should occur when Event Handler is removed  (and even better GC
should occur even if Event Handler is not manually removed)
