I guess, I was approaching the problem from the wrong side.
What I am really interested in are the implications of this
fact for the programmer. What I believe to have understood
so far is:
You have no guarantee that a finalizer you registered
will ever be run -- even if the program terminates
Is that correct? Or did I misunderstand something?
