Hmmm... this smells like a failure to reclaim storage to me. Basically
malloc/free is likely to have the same kind of overhead as inlining the text,
but if token heads aren't getting reused, this is a memory leak, and one which
generic tools will not be able to see.

So my strong guess is that either there is a missing token delete somewhere, or
the token allocator fails to makes a deleted token head available for reuse.
