I tried:
cd /usr/local/emacs/trunk; make clean; ./autogen.sh; ./configure
--with-ns --without_gnutls; make install

and this still leads to RSS growing even if I kill all buffers, and
then to a crash.  all it takes to see and reproduce this is to edit a
large file, kill it, and see that memory does not reduce back even
after M-x garbage-collect.  Please see
and note that aquamacs based on 23.3 does not seem to have this problem.

please let me know if there is anything else I can do.
