My question is how do I tell if a pointer is "garbage collected" or not?


You could try `GC.addrOf()` or `GC.query()` in core.memory.

I was going to say this, but then I realized, it's not that the pointer points at GC-allocated memory, but that the pointer itself is stored in a location that is scanned by the GC. That's not as easy to figure out, as you have to look at stacks, added ranges, etc.

It would be interesting to test whether those methods handle these scenarios.
