It's not so clear what could be MacOS-specific.

I ran it under gdb, and interrupted it several times with C-z in gdb. Most of 
the stack traces were in the garbage collector, suggesting that it is 
collecting like crazy. This doesn't surprise me, as it is constantly allocating 
new memory. The rest of this stack trace doesn't have useful information.

I managed to get a stack trace where it is processing. I haven't analysed these 
yet, but I include both here.
