Installed heaptrack on various machines.

First run on Shuttle / Rescue: Machine hung

Running on Crazypad, the Lenovo Thinkpad. Not reproducing the memory leak, unless I hit control-Z and restart. Then memory jumps very quickly. Tried overloading the system with builds and loops, that is not enough to cause a "progressive" overload.
