Surviving garbage collection


Level 7

I have a number of forms that use functionality encapsulated in script variables. These script variables have state in them, that must survive between calls. However, SpiderMonkey's GC disagrees, causing issues when objects that are supposed to be initialized disappears. I know there are some workarounds for this, but I worry that none of them are documented by Adobe. Many of these forms are used by third parties and must continue to work from year to year and version to version of Reader. Does anyone have suggestions?
