I can reproduce the frequent and slow GC.  Once decryption fails, and
I quit out of waiting for it, GC becomes quite frequent.

Quitting asks me

  Buffer " *epg*" has a running process; kill it?

I say yes, but afterward there is still a running process called epg.
And each successive decryption attempt creates another process.  I
suppose that is responsible for the frequent garbage collections and
filling up memory.  It seems to GC after every few chars I type, but
not while Emacs is idle.

So the only real bug is the one affecting decryption.
