Hi everybody.

I have a probably very stupid question. In my program I need to launch 
sequentially many GA, so I would like to delete my old genome and ga to 
free some memory. for example I use

GABin2DecGenome genome(map, Objective, (MyObject *) Object);
GASimpleGA ga(genome);

and I tried to delete them by writing


Anyway, my program always breaks down telling me

"Unhandled exception at 0x004040f5 in MyProgram.exe: 0xC0000005: Access 
violation reading location 0xdddddddd."

referring to this line (L 123) of gabin2decgenome.h:

 virtual ~GABin2DecGenome(){delete ptype;}

Also, I tried to use these expression

delete genome;
delete ga;

In many different form, but It does not allow me to compile my program.

What did I wrong? Thanks in advance
