Are you creating your objects in a loop like this:

for i=1,1000 do
  object = create()


If so the last object created will still be reachable via the global
variable 'object', so it won't be reclaimed when you force a GC.

If this is what is happening, then assign nil to the variable, then GC.

Why do you care exactly when the objects are reclaimed by the way?
