The GC does not make any difference between Guix and Nix.  It deletes
anything that is no longer referenced from a GC root.

If Guix and Nix were configured with the same --localstatedir (info
"(guix) Requirements"), then their GC roots are in the same place and
everything works fine.

Could it be that you used different --localstatedir values?
