Slashdot Editorial Failure [Re: C# Garbage Collection Failure]

Yet another Slashdot editorial failure.  As the article clearly  
states, there was a bug in the Princeton team's code, not in the C#  
garbage collector.  Their obstacle-detection code retained references  
to objects that they should have released for garbage collection.   
The whole article is an advertisement for a memory-profiling tool;  
the title of the submission was probably chosen to take advantage of  
Slashdot's knee-jerk anti-Microsoft bias.
