Test Project

On jelly bean, when using measuretext & gettextbounds, it increments the native memory without limit. Only occurs with 4.1 & external TTF from assets on Android 4.03. 

Attached is a test project. 
After 12 hours of operation or less may use 124 MB of RAM and crash once and again. It is a simple widget that just displays the time every 30 sec

This project crash in android 4.0.4 and android 4.1. It looks like something hangs between [Mono] <-> [dalvik] <-> [native C] and objects were not released.
