There appears to be a huge memory leak in the expression evaluator. For
example when I set a conditional breakpoint on a frequently executed
line gdb quickly grows in the order of 500mb per second. When I make
the breakpoint unconditional, but add commands to call continue when the
condition is not satisfied I still see some big growth, but only in the
order of 100mb per second. The difference is probably because
breakpoint commands are executed much slower.
