What I was trying to say is that "newstr" is probably not the worst problem.
There may be a lot of memory allocated during the jam run but is freed at the
end. So, strictly speaking, there's no memory leak -- just inefficient memory
usage. If this is the case, I suspect a major overhaul would be required to
fix it.
