Nonetheless, thanks to all your help, I understand things better now, and
can properly remove objects I currently "have control over."  Because I was
able to test things based on all your feedback, I have narrowed my problem
down to an Aida misunderstanding on my part.

For any Aida-ers out there, playing with a WebGrid, it's bound objects, and
garbage collection should lead one to a greater understanding of
WebSession(s) and WebSessionManager(s)!  I'm not saying I've figured it out
yet--just that I can get reproducible results now!

Thanks for the help,
