    Could there be a memory leak somewhere?  What is the best way to debug 
this?  I
    looked into the Emacs gc chapter but I didn't see anything that would help.

I suspect there is a memory leak in Emacs, but I don't know anything
about the cause.  One possible cause is that some sort of history list
(or something like a history list which isn't officially called that)
is growing and we need to add code to truncate it occasionally.  There
could also be an ordinary memory leak involving non-GCable C data.

If you could narrow down which operations increase the size
inordinately, we might be able to find the problem.
