Description

Test script: https://gist.github.com/3009867

Conclusions:
- Ruby 1.8.7 (REE) is able to run finalizer on GC when its proc is created outside of scope and so that does not handle object in its binding.
- even Ruby 1.8.7 not able to run finalizer until program exit when finalizer's proc is created in scope where #define_finalizer is called
- neither Ruby 1.9.2, nor Ruby 1.9.3, nor Ruby-trunk is able to run finalizer until program exit.

=begin
No.
(1) an object may not be collected even if it seems not referred from reading the code.
(2) finalizers may not run just after the object is collected.
