No, it's not.  You misunderstand.  The problem that I say is not
important is the fact that if ever Emacs gets up to N megabytes for good
reasons (you really use up that much stuff at a given time), and later
on you use up less stuff, the Emacs process may keep using up
N megabytes (most of it inactive).

If you have little memory and N megabytes is a problem, then it will be
a problem already when you do use that much, i.e. before the "waste"
comes into play.

FWIW, my office desktop is a 1GB fit-pc2.

Looks like we have a real leak there, yes.
