I don't think it is a huge or radical fix. It is just something
that can break compatibility, if a program does something fancy
with the GC inside a finalizer. (I am not sure what that could be :-)
Otherwise, it is a local and small fix.

It is interesting to note that one 'collectgarbage' functionality
already does not work when called from a finalizer, and apparently
nobody cared. :-)
