I've tried building revs 105207 and 105208, each bootstrapped after
'make clean'.

While I can't be entirely sure, revision 105207 seems to behave
itself even after using gnus for a while.

Revision 105208 seems to show growing memory usage, but nothing like as
fast as I observed before a full rebuild. After running for a few hours
memory usage seems to have stabilised at approx 93MB, and I'm not
seeing the > 1GB runaway consumption from before.

I'll keep trying with newer builds to see if I can find anything that
produces the excessive memory usage again.
