There is no garbage collecting problem in LiveCode 4.5 and 5.0.x. I don't know about 5.5.x yet, but I don't expect it.
There might be some scripts running after you delete a card. To prevent this, lock messages before deleting the card:
This will probably faster than whatever you're doing now.
There are probably reasons why LiveCode goes non-responsive. A possibility might be a problem in a stackResized handler. This consitently locks up LiveCode.
