I noticed an enormous memory consumption of emacs, but I didn't notice
the warning during compilation for a long time and I have
`inhibit-splash-screen' set to t.

Shouldn't we add an appropriate `display-warning' in `startup.el' if
`pure-space-overflow' is t even if `inhibit-splash-screen' it t?
And/or add a "sleep ..." in the Makefile in this case.

Bye, Reiner.
