Just for the record: a *compile* buffer ended with 10M lines of
diagnostics emitted by a compiler. The emacs process jumped from 60MB to
526MB of RES memory. That was yesterday, and emacs keeps retaining that

I guess that as the buffer grew it was reallocated again and
again. Obviously fragmentation is at play here.
