     Your main problem is that you aren't understanding what Jeremy and I 
just said in previous messages.  I find it pointless to try to continue 
to explain this because I do not know how to say it in simpler terms than 
Jeremy outlined for you.  Read some books on the subject and take some 
time to think about it.  In the mean time, don't worry about it because 
it doesn't matter.  Just assume that it's freed, because for your 
purposes it is.  The fact that the mob stats are still in memory is 
irrelevant.  Keep in mind that this is not suprising behavior to those of 
us that know what's going on.
