Obarrays are ordinary vectors, that get garbage collected like any other

I didn't think the vectors themselves would be in trouble, but rather what is behind the vectors: the buckets, the symbols and so on. Even after the vectors are gone, there could be references to the symbols in other places, could there not? So, it is not entirely clear when all that memory could be collected?
