Do you have any more idea about what shutting the garbage collector
off achieves?  In practice, the garbage collector's most common effect
is to turn latent bugs into manifest bugs; a bug has trashed part of
memory and the garbage collector just happens to find it first.  If
you turn GC off in these cases, you run a little longer, but you're
running with corrupted memory.
