For whatever reason, I had trouble using heap buddy a while back when I
first tried, which led me to trying Nemerle's profiler (and hacking some
things into it, which was a good experience even if heap buddy already
did the same things).  I was able to find and remove many of the biggest
object allocators that I found, but I'll give heap buddy a shot again
for finding objects that aren't being collected.

Thanks for the pointer.
