I have just been made aware of the following paper, which investigates
garbage collection, especially in the presence of quasi-infinite data
structures:

> [1] J. Wielemaker, U. Neumerkel. Precise Garbage Collection in Prolog.
> CICLOPS, Udine 2008.

The paper contains a table indicating that ECLiPSe 5.10 shows shortcomings
in two of the benchmark scenarios.  I am however pleased to say that
ECLiPSe 6.0 successfully passes all these tests, and therefore provides
"precise garbage collection" in the sense of this study.
