I have disabled evil, tls, starttls and erc.
Then I loaded one erlang file, let it sit there for a couple hours,
loaded ~/.emacs.d/init.el. Then killed both buffers, let it sit there
and it's still only at 24.8megs so far. Calling garbage-collect
make the RES go up to 24.9 and goes down to 24.8 soon after.
That's of course unscientific, so no need to tell me that :).

By the way, I'm glad there's a lively discussion around this topic and
that I'm not the only one affected.
