This is now fixed. A patch is attached, but the code will also soon be available in 2.7.alpha1

The MibLoader.unload() methods pretend to unload a loaded MIB. However, they only remove the loaded Mib from the loader itself, not from the OID tree. This means that the unloading serves no purpose, effectively making it pointless.

When unloading a Mib, all the ObjectIdentifierValue objects should be detached from one another. This will mean that the Mib or its symbols are no longer possible to reference in any way. Setting all the object links inside symbol and value objects to null may also help the garbage collector to reclaim all the memory used.
