Great.  It's really helpful.

I can see now that a single page load is resulting in the creation of 
100,000 new string instances.  Seems like a lot, but maybe it's just par 
for the course.  So now I have a new problem: I can see tons of strings 
are being allocated by I18N.Common.ByteEncoding:GetString() and 
MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlDataReader:GetOrdinal(), but I don't know if 
they're not being deallocated promptly, and I can't imagine tracing 
through the code to see if the strings are hanging around unnecessarily 
either within MySql.Data or higher up.

So, if anyone has any suggestions....
