Still looking for a way to do this from Java. I was hoping that the Java
garbage collection and finalization would at least do it, but it does not
seem to. I searched the JavaHL native code and do not see where this method
is called. Should things like the dispose and finalize methods not do stuff
like this to cleanup resource usage?
Anyone have any ideas how I can do this from Java with the limited stuff
that has been exposed to the API?
I guess ideally, I would like the dispose() method to free these resources,
but we would also need the segfault fixed that happens when GC runs and
frees the objects you have disposed.
