Description

17 years ago
The boehm GC doesn't work with DLL unloading enabled (it prints lots of
garbage), since when it prints out stack traces of leaks it expects the
addresses on the stack to still be valid.  It needs to store the information it
needs when it takes the stack traces.  (I don't think this should be too
expensive because of the data structures it uses -- I think we should only need
one lookup per address rather than every time we see that address.)
