- (ROOM T) can bring a small computer to its knees for a *long*

- Daniel Barlow doesn't know what fixed this, but observes that it

+ a) ROOM works by walking over the heap linearly, instead of
+ following the object graph. Hence, it report garbage objects that

- unless a GC has happened beforehand.
+ b) ROOM uses MAP-ALLOCATED-OBJECTS to walk the heap, which doesn't
+ check all pointers as well as it should, and can hence become
