There is no garbage collector. Objects are destroyed just when nothing 
references them. You must be careful only with circular references, that 
prevents objects for being freed.

Destructors are called when objects are destroyed. They are rarely used in 
Gambas. Logically, you must do in the destructor the contrary of what you did 
in the constructor.
