Nah. Theoretically possible, but I've never heard of it actually
effecting real code. Other compiler/OS bugs - or cosmic rays effecting
your memory are much more likely to bite you.
GCJ uses the Boehm conservative collector. Using a precise
collector with code generated by an optimizing compiler is
