finalize

Hello everybody,

it's years since I've been using Sather but I decided to use 
it again in a new project where I have to use a C-backend-library 
which does reference counting. 

Therefore I need to finalize my "wrapper"-Objects (at least 
from time to time).
I tried to implement a finalize method 

   finalize is
      #OUT + "   finalize called on " + self + 
            " ref_count now: " + ref_count + "\n";
      if need_deref then deref
      elsif need_recursiv_deref then recursive_deref
      end
   end;

but noticed that it doesn't get called, even if I explicitely 
call SYS::destroy on the corresp. object.

Is there anything that I've done wrong? I dind't sub-type from 
$FINALIZE but it doesn't exit anymore anyway.

Alex
