Serhiy: I think you forgot to make a global instance of the type for your demonstration. You mentioned in msg253899 that the loop is:

global instance -> type -> method -> module globals -> global instance

The example you gave doesn't instantiate class A, and it's the instance of A that doesn't participate in GC and causes the problem, right?
