I never call Free() on interfaced object. I surely know that if I have used 
interfaces for the last 10 years or so ;-) .
What I need is a way to make sure that all the references are gone. This is 
the first non garbage collected compiler that has prevented me from 
releasing all the references so far. Delphi, the C++ COM libraries VB etc. 
they all have behaved in a predictable way. Lazarus is the first surprise 
for me ;-) . There is always a first time however.

  With best regards,
