Well, I let my server eat away at the garbage collection for quite
some time...

On previous attempts at Sweeping... I let the process run for more
than 2 hours... and at that time I figured that it was not ever going
to "come back" - and my server is a dedicated database server only
running FB... so I know that it had all the resources that it
wanted :)

But there was a lot of garbage in there!!! :-)
