The graying of windows during a GC is a feature. It means the windows need
updating, but the Lisp code to update them cannot run during a GC...
The infinite GC symptom means you are running with memory almost full. You code
fills the free memory almost instantly, provoking a GC, and so on. Increasing
the partition size for MCL may help a lot. Of course, if you keep loading data
that cannot be GC-ed, you'll run out of memory anyway.
