I've been playing with apple events using MCL
However I seem to have run into a problem involving unexplained useage of the
Mac Heap. I have narrowed it down to a call to the #_AESend call. As it turns
out the mac heap is being used in such a way that the GC facility will not
reclaim the used space. As a result the mac Heap keeps growing and growing...
I have seen to all the records that I create but cannot figure out where the
space is being lost.
The apple event that is being sent has a #$keyDirectObject parameter stuffed
into it which is of type (record :some-type).
It would seem that this is a problem as it will eventually crash the system
when the mac heap grows to consume all free space.
