That's why I phrased my sentence as a question---or at least tried to.

First, note that we don't have reference-counting garbage collection in 
general in UNO.  For example, Java-UNO doesn't use reference-counting.

Second, note that there needs to be code (the "owner" in the jargon of 
the udkapi/com/sun/star/lang/XComponent.idl documentation) that 
explicitly calls dispose on a UNO object.  It is not magically called 
when a UNO object becomes unreachable.
