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.
