Garbage collection doesn't collect memory that you have explicit 
references to, does it?

At 2 Mbits/sec, 0.4 Mbytes/sec, it would probably take you a few minutes 
to run out of memory (~5 hours for 8G of RAM, actually, unless I slipped 
a decimal).
That's completely OK with me. You asked for it, you got it.
