You need to spend time with the JQuery doc :-)

Actually, this is wrong, in that at the point JQuery defines "ready",
the body's onload event has already passed.

You'll have to decide if there's a functional difference between those
two (pseudo)events in your case, but if not, you could do e.g.

$(document).ready( function() {
  $("body").bind("unload", function(){ GUnload();});

Or something like that :-)
