[Mono-list] garbage collector

I installed and compiled mono on linux and config tells
me that it uses the boehm garbage collector.

When I run my program I also get plenty of warning from
GC Warning: Repeated allocation of very large block
(appr. size xxxx) (xxxx = some number).
So it seems that some garbage collector is running.

What is however surprising to is that no memory ever
seems to be garbage collected ...

Now I wonder ... is there anything I miss on doing
(e.g. some parameter I need to pass to Mono) or is that
that garbage collection really in yet fully  integrated
or is it just bug? Maybe I need to call garbage
collection all the time?

What is the status of garbage collection?
