It might have contributed. What was really doing it for me--I learned--is
that I am opening an r_exec environment with every message. Apparently, they
weren't getting cleaned up well.
Now I'm sort of curious, though. Is there a way for a program to return some
space to the system? I'm concerned that if I swell to 79% again in the
presence of heavy traffic, all the gc in the world won't shrink me below
that value. Or is this a FAQ somewhere?
