[racket-dev] Where does this program allocate?

I noticed the large amount of allocation going on when I was using
mandelbrot to test my fixes to the visualizer last week -- I'll take a
look.  I wrote an allocation hotspot profiler tool that may end up as part
of the visualizer in some form, so I can try running it on your code.
