Looks like it is progressing too slowly towards GC; what happens if you 
GC it manually?

We are considering adding some background process that will GC the 
biggest process every so often, since it seems to be possible to end up 
with processes that consume a lot of memory but haven't chalked up 
enough reductions to get GCed.
