Do you have problems with the 5.1 collector?
I am trying to debug a crash which occurs when one of my __gc
metamethods tries to release a COM object that I didn't implement. I
suspect that the bug may be in the COM object's implementation, but I'm
not sure. If reference counting is used instead of or in addition to
the normal collector, I know the object will be released sooner. In the
best case, this may make the problem go away. If that doesn't happen, I
may at least have more information that I can use to track down the
problem, since I'll know the eact point at which the object is no longer
used. So this has nothing to do with performance.
