Andrei, for what it's worth I've never seen the kind of delay you're talking 
about just from garbage collection (in Java or .NET CF).  I don't think trying 
to "help" the GC by invoking it directly at a certain time is generally a good 
idea.  I never do it.  Given all the multithreading you're doing I agree with 
Dick that maybe you should be looking for possible deadlocks.
