I'm running Emacs 23.3.1 / AUCTeX-version "2011-09-18". [I get massive memory leaks with Emacs 24, without even running LuaLaTeX or anything like that]. But for Emacs 23, I've only noticed the memory leak when I run LuaLaTeX. (It seems to be worse the more times I run LuaLaTeX.)

Here is a minimal document which causes a memory leak in Emacs when compiled with LuaLaTeX. (This one won't work in plain LaTeX because of fontspec though.)


\setmainfont{Linux Libertine O}
\setsansfont[Scale=MatchLowercase]{Linux Biolinum O}
\setmonofont[Scale=MatchLowercase]{Latin Modern Mono}

Hello, world.

What version of emacs?  There's currently a thread "pretest notes" on
emacs-devel about a memory leak in emacs 24 which might be related.

And does the leak only occur with luatex?  Do you have some tex document
one could use to try to reproduce the problem, preferrably one that
compiles with luatex and plain latex?
