[Gtk-sharp-list] What happened to garbage collection?

Well, probably a GTK# Cursor wraps a much constrained GTK resource,
that must be released as soon as possible, and the GC may release it
some minutes or hours too late. This is typical of graphics/windowing
code, as normally there is contention for hardware-limited resources
(not always memory-related).
