I set gc-hook to t to see what would happen. What do these messages mean? Examples:
[ gc: total 82640, [ny:gc-hook allocating 2000 more cells] 28173 free; samples 953KB, 0KB free ]
[ gc: total 84640, 28202 free; samples 953KB, 0KB free ]
I was trying to use some tricks in my code to reduce the amount of consing to make things a little faster, with no apparent benefit.
