Sure, let me pick one for you:

lisp_align_malloc (alloc.c:1195)
 Fcons (alloc.c:2694)
  concat (fns.c:730)
   Fcopy_sequence (fns.c:598)
    timer_check (keyboard.c:4395)
     wait_reading_process_output (process.c:5334)
      sit_for (dispnew.c:6056)
       read_char (keyboard.c:2742)
        read_key_sequence (keyboard.c:9551)
         command_loop_1 (keyboard.c:1354)
          internal_condition_case (eval.c:1365)
           command_loop_2 (keyboard.c:1095)
            internal_catch (eval.c:1126)
             command_loop (keyboard.c:1074)
              recursive_edit_1 (keyboard.c:718)
               Frecursive_edit (keyboard.c:790)
                main (emacs.c:2080)
There is a 171MiB's worth of allocations in that path.

There are a lot of traces ending in wait_reading_process_output that
are consuming 50MiB.
