Details

The cycle collector has a scan delay (currently set at 10 collection attempts) to avoid scanning freshly suspected pointers, so that we know their refcount has somewhat stabilized. I wonder if we should ignore that delay on shutdown, wouldn't it be better to try to collect all potential cycles then?
Summary: Should the cycle collector ignore it's scan delay at shutdown? → Should the cycle collector ignore its scan delay at shutdown?
I thought the patch to scan at shutdown did do that.  If it doesn't, we should.
Grrrr, mxr's version of nsCycleCollector.cpp is out-of-date.
