Most of that bmalloc memory is very likely a bajillion DOM nodes (<strong> elements and Text nodes), I bet. They probably all have a JS DOM wrapper each, but even if we could GC those we'd only recover the wrapper memory, since the nodes are still physically inserted in the DOM.

I'm unsure what the right solution would be here. I mean, if we raise the limit, there will still come a day when we get so fast at creating and inserting DOM nodes, that we exceed the new limit :)
