As someone else responded, this is how virtual memory works -- any
other program will behave in the same way, and it's not something
to worry about.  If Snd is slowed down, it's probably because it's
calculating the "peak env" data which can be speeded up (subsequently)
by using the functions in peak-env.scm.
