Ahh, that makes total sense. i had a debug print staqtmenet that looked
like this

    s7_pointer let = s7_c_object_let(arg);
            s7_list(s, 4,
                    s7_make_string(s, "BEFORE MARK ~A ~A~%"),
                    arg, let));

there's a bunch of allocations there -- red herring! ok, i'll stick to
regular fprintf.
