I'm not pretending it is the end-all fix. - we (I) need to understand 
what is happening and make the numbers match up exactly.  This is just 
a kludge.

'master' in its previous states grows the heap to 600M doing the 1000-fold
version of srfi-18 test I posted. I think it's not a good solution.

Commenting out the assert for x86-64 should yield better behavior.
