Yes (though it doesn't use all my RAM and I can kill it no problem - I
have 4gb, if that's relevant). I also use gnus. It happened twice, I
don't remember what I was doing the first time, and the second was when
I was using ffap inside ERC to display a link in an external browser.

It all started around the time bidi-display-reordering was turned to t,
although I can't be 100% sure it's related.
