To confirm, try compiling with the env var GC_DONT_GC=1 set.
nemerle-0.2.1 builds fine on my box. Are you running on x86?

You could enable the commented code in metadata/object.c at line 564 and change to:
		static int count = 0;
		if (count++ > 58) {
			g_print ("typed alloc disabled for %s.%s\n", class->name_space, class->name);
Increasing/decreasing the value and checking if nemerle works should point
out for which type the GC descriptor is computed incorrectly.
Or you can file a bug with details we can use to find the issue.
