When I start emacs, open a file in a buffer, do some changes in it and

minutes wakes up again and says in a separate buffer:
Emergency (alloc): Warning: past 95% of memory limit
This problem doesn't always occur on saves.
I don't know what more to tell, but if you want more details about
something, feel free to ask me.
Is there any pattern to when this occurs? Particular file types? Files
saved in a particular location?
Try setting debug-on-quit to t (you can toggle this variable from the
Options menu), then when you notice the problem, press C-g and see if
you get thrown into the lisp debugger.
