in order to help find some long-standing garbage collector bugs, in
r17470 i've just disabled the -G flag on three PGE test files. see the
content of the patch below. this may cause test failures due to a gc
bug.

this ticket serves to notify folks of test failure, and alert them
that it's a known issue, and we're working on it. this ticket should
also be used to track the progress of the hunt and smoking out of
these notorious bugs.

Using -Rgcdebug, verified that none of these three test files have any GC issues. Closing
ticket.

(I should have put a timer on that. Ow, my poor CPU)
