Perhaps it's a different leak. The bug I just found (and posted a patch
for) involves GC becoming less and less frequent (on the average) as
soon as memory allocation exceeds the threshold where gc-cons-percentage
would start to matter, or ~20Mb, whichever is larger.
Hmm. How does the discrepancy between what M-: (garbage-collect) RET returns
and the virtual memory allocated according to the OS, look on your build?
I’m building with your patch and will experiment further tomorrow, but the
two did diverge notably for me.
I've not been running with this patch for long, but preliminary
indicate that leak rates are down to those I'd associate with 21.4.x.
When I was in the scouts, the leader told me to pitch a tent. I couldn't
find any pitch, so I used creosote.
