At one point I was watching htop and every time I switched to the
Emacs window and returned to htop, I'd see it grow by several more MB
over 3-5 seconds and then stop. So I left Emacs as the focused window
overnight, and it grew from 4GB to 8GB.

In this instance, I had my cursor at the bottom of a saved Org file. I
wasn't even actively typing or interacting with Emacs. I just grew
each time it got window focus.

Yes I have a few timers, but those trip at midnight. I call org-agenda
and org-caldev-sync. I don't have any other timers that I know of.

Mind you I'm running daemon mode and I'm looking at an emacsclient
