Actually, these machines explicitly complain about non-reclaimable
memory due a process named "chuck," which has eaten it all.  Then
either the OS will kill chuck, or I will have to manually kill the
system by rebooting the machine.  I went through my code, however, and
have been finding some objects that are unnecessarily created every
time a certain method (spawning a grain) is called, which will
definitely contribute to the memory leaks.  I'm fixing those as I find

Wasn't there a trick to deallocating memory for objects?  I thought
you could do something like, ...

null => myObject;

... however, this crashes chuck on my machines.
