[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next] [Date Index] [Thread Index]

Thinking about all the cases,  I would consider a more radical
solution. Maybe we should forbid any GC operation while running
a finalizer. As we discussed several times in the past, finalizers
should be used to free resources that cannot be freed by the GC;
period. The less they should do, the better. But that can be a
too radical change for a bug-fix release.
