[plt-scheme] threads, memory leakage?

Try 3m, if you aren't using it already.  Not only is it
faster (most of the time) but the GC is precise.  The Boehm
GC will leak over time.

As for the memory usage, 114MB isn't that much.  Our
web-server instances settle around 300MB.  I wouldn't only
be worried if it doesn't hit a steady state, so I would
keep  running tests until either memory usage settles down,
or you run out of memory.  Only if the later happens do you
have a leak.  (Alternatively you can insert calls to
collect-garbage and see what happens).
