    IOW, the problem is not that the GC is taking longer but that the memory
    is filling up with many Lisp objects.  You can try M-x profiler-start
    RET mem RET ... use Emacs for a while ... M-x profiler-report.

I have tried this.  I can't understand the answers, though.  I did
profiler-report several times, and each time it displays more than a
meg.  Once it reported over 7 meg.

I did it in a session where I did real work, and got this:

    + redisplay_internal (C function)                          29,776,412   0%

    + clear-transient-map                                           1,040   0%
      ...                                                               0   0%
    + command-execute                                          -452333584   0%

But the problem had not happened.

    You can also try the install memory-usage (from GNU ELPA)
