Hmm, not sure it was unbounded, but it was certainly consuming a lot of extra 
memory. Note that with the debugging off top shows it as..
19876 root         1 100    0   315M   136M select  18:16 13.67% Xorg

so it's hardly small.

Hmm, I thought touching CFLAGS in make.conf was verboten..
If not then I will use it.
