or switching to full stack scanning instead on WoW64...
reduced performance is probably preferable to having a message popup
every time an app starts, or a message can be sent to stderr or to a log
and, hell, MS may eventually address this issue somehow (like, say,
making it return less stale values...).
other remote possibilities include using stack-cleaning and
stack-bottom-estimation (where the GC can try to make an educated guess
as to the stack bottom) to reduce retention.
