15:02 timotimo not really; what do you have in mind?
15:02 timotimo in theory, you could set things to always be allocated in gen2 and that would never trigger a nursery collection and thus never collect gen2 either

15:05 pmurias timotimo: I'm trying to figure out a bug which sometimes causes bits of javascript to be missing from nqp-js output
15:06 pmurias timotimo: it seems to be happening in a what to appears to be a random manner so I don't really know how to reproduce it
15:08 timotimo mhm
15:08 timotimo i expect you've already thrown oun SPESH completely?
15:09 pmurias no
15:09 timotimo i'm not saying it will help, but it will at least make the surface area a bit smaller
15:18 pmurias timotimo: will try when the bug appears again to harass me some more
15:19 timotimo thanks
15:19 timotimo i hope it helps :\
15:19 timotimo but if it's truly gc related, turning spesh on/off can stir the pot sufficiently to make it go back into hiding again
15:22 pmurias timotimo: finding a way to artificialy trigger seems to only sensible way to start hunting it down :/
15:23 timotimo yeakh
15:23 timotimo if you find something that makes it "go away", you can never know if you fixed it or just hid it so it can appear again later
