[Mono-dev] Embedding Mono and HandleRef...

I'm using the Mono embedding API and I'm using HandleRef's instead of
IntPtr's (as per the instructions on the interop page).
However, the HandleRef's seem to only be marshaled to IntPtr's if you're
using p/invoke's. I've attached a tar ball with two examples of what I'm
trying to do. Both examples can be compiled and run using "make run".
The Dll_Import example works flawlessly, marshaling the HandleRef into
an IntPtr. The mono_embed fails miserably because the HandleRef is still
a MonoObject (notice the memory address' don't line up as they do in the
From Robert Jordan's earlier e-mail it seems that the HandleRef is
intentionally not marshaled. So my question is, how do I get the
advantages of HandleRef's when using the embedding API? And if I just
switch back to IntPtr's, will my C# objects get collected before my
native code is done executing?
