My experience agrees with Pavel.
I've never observed ones that size. I have an application that runs in
'rate equivalent real-time' (i.e. there may be some jitter in the
exact time of events but it does not accumulate). It does have some
visibility of likely time of future events and uses that to perform
some speculative garbage collection. GC is pretty short and i've not
seen an effect > 1ms in those runs (all the usual caveats apply - my
programs are not your programs etc).
