There's no way to write a regression test for this; the wrong pool
was being used to store data. So that means sometimes it worked,
sometimes it didn't. It's not reliably reproducible. It took 8 weeks
for someone to actually be burned by it. :-)

These *are* regression tests that were failing.

There's no way for our regression tests to measure memory usage (at
least not at the moment.) The reproduction recipe is: dump a large
repository, and watch the process in 'top'. Before, it took 100M.
Now it's down to 3.5M.

This has a new regression test.
