I think I discovered another issue. Not sure if you are already aware of it. Don't remember it being reported before. 

Seems like using heaptrc feature (memory leak reporting) with refc-compiler leads to program crashing on exit. In particular, it appears that heaptrc starts reporting memory leaks earlier than refcounted objects get released

Not like it is a big problem now. If desired, one can check if refcounted objects leak or not by keeping a global counter variable for each base class (call InterlockedIncrement in constructor; call InterlockedDecrement in destructor; then write count in finalization section of unit)
