I think the request is not very clear.  We do have a machine with
100GB of RAM, so that part should not be a problem.  The question of
Maciej can probably be rephrased as: can you give us a reproducible
example?  Even if the large pauses appear to occur on any example you
try (which they shouldn't), please give us one such example.

Also, maybe we should have anyway a way to give the GC a hint: "now is
a good time to run if you need to".

A bientôt,
