found and tried out the -vgc option...
Is there a way to deactivate the GC, if it stands in way?

Yes, I thought in the same direction. That's why I tried to 
reimplement the c++ version. The idea was: as I can't compete 
with the GC of C#, I could try to compete by applying another 
approach. I don't try to write something which compete with c++ 
either (I would have to take c++, then? ;) ), but something which 
clearly outperforms the languages with a virtual machine...

tried the -inline option... no time win...
