	I'd always just assumed that the Kaffe garbage collector was
working as advertised, albeit slowly, but could it be that it's
actually leaking memory? It certainly does seem to use a whole lot
more memory than the JDK. Might that explain why it runs so slowly?

	Could someone post an interpretation of the various fields in
the print-outs Kaffe generates when the -verbosegc option is used?
