Thanks for the info!  I found the reason the memory leaks inside Serveez.
But there is something I wonder anyway.  I put a (gc-stats) in the
handle-request routine of the Mandelbrot server.  There I could see how
number of cells and the heap size changes.  The cell numbers goes up and
down as expected, but the (bytes-malloced) value steadily grows.  And I do
not know why, because Serveez does not actually grows (see top).  Any
pointers for me?

Thanks in advance,
