Indeed they should.  In the JVM, finalizers originally ran in ordinary
random threads, but there were so many problems that the design was
switched to running on a separate thread.  The CLR does the same.  See
(which predates the switch) for details.

Yes, chili in the eye is bad, but so is your    John Cowan

hands thoroughly before going to the toilet.
