> Any harm in forcing garbage collection to run?

You cannot force garbage collection to run, only suggest it to the
JVM via methods like System.gc().  If you're having difficulty
tracking down memory usage, try a profiler like OptimizeIt that has
entire memory trees.

In addition, you can use parameters like hprof and verbosegc on
the java command line to assist you in monitoring garbage collection.
