What version of Emacs is that, and on which OS?

FWIW, my Emacs runs for many weeks if not months, has about 250 to 300
buffers of various sizes, and never exceeds 200MB (usually levels out
at 170MB).

I don't think there's much fragmented memory in real-life use (barring
bugs).  The test cases that exhibited a lot of fragmentation are all
toy examples that don't really happen.
