I'm not following this sentence, as it implies logarithmic growth in 
memory, which is not observed.

At some point in the executable's life, the major GC cycles consistently 
occur at the same level of memory usage

Also I wrote 3.5ms per 80MB, that was a mistake, I meant to write 3.5ms 
per MB on my hardware. Very sorry

Thanks. This discussion is of great value.
