I'll be working on this and now have a self-contained testbed (and I
invite others to use the tests on their systems to see whether they
get different results).  Getting memory consumption at least down to
where it was with 1.7.1 is my goal.

OTOH my clumsy method of measuring memory consumption (watching task
manager or top) doesn't tell us the full story since it only shows the
peak memory consumption and after a GC things may look differently
inside of the VM.
