[plt-scheme] drscheme/mred memory use

Your issue is probably something else, but you might want to check this:

Keep a eye on how much text your program sends to std out.  I had been
writing debugging messages to standard out, and had no idea that I was
throwing hundreds and hundreds of megs of text to standard out, which
got "stored" in the scrollback of the "interactions window".

Doing this, I was able to get Drscheme memory consumption of over a
gig without realizing what was causing it :)
