Thanks, Stephan and David.  I'll try running for a while with 1GB and see
if that fixes things.

I'm willing to believe that the gc() time is the same, just seems longer
with all the messages :)
As for the freezes, the cursor turns into an x (but not a skull &
crossbones) and the window is completely unresponsive to clicking.  I don't
know about escape ... next time I get one of these, I'll give it a try.
