Fixed in mono master.
Looks like this is not yet in 7.0.6, so it will be included the next time the mono is bumped to master (or a new branch made from master).
It doesn't look like the issue is fully resolved though. I'm still getting plenty of leaks with master. I'm not sure if it's in the gsharedvt code, but I figured I'd provide the results.

I can reproduce those remaining leaks with master as well.

I have checked this issue with latest builds and I am still getting memory leak with attached sample 'TestApp'.

Those are other memory leaks, they are not related to this bug.
@Saurabh like Zoltan in comment #8 said that's a different issue (not a regression, the original gsharedvt memory leak is fixed) and needs a separate bug report (you can give a link to this so the same app/screencast can be re-used).
note: re-opening bug should only be done for regressions (not for similar. but unrelated, issues)
As in comment8, Zoltan said that Comment7 is a different issue. So I have file a new issue for the same:
As per comment 8, comment 9 and comment 10, this issue is fixed and now we are getting different issue so we have filled Bug 18509.
Hence closing this issue.
