* We cut the threshold computation in the GC so that it uses:

That's almost exactly a modification I made locally to work2, too.
I haven't yet looked into how appropriate a similar modification
in work3 would be (though I did notice that work3 generally has
similar memory wants as work2 -- I think I concluded from my
mid-November fiddling that stepmul>2 is *mostly* a red herring,
and changing the threshold growth factor as above is a more
effective way of restricting memory growth).
