si:reorder-memory in Genera 7.2

I recently installed Genera 7.2 on our machines. I also built a
utilities incremental world (TCP, Print, etc.) on top of the Genera
7.2 world, without doing any optimizing of the world. On top of the
utilities world, I then built a rather large (45,800 blocks)
incremental world with the software we develop here. The software
calls si:reorder-memory after everything is loaded. Doing this with
Genera 7.2 increased the world size by 10,000 blocks. This seems
pretty radical. Has anyone had a similar problem? Can anyone tell me
why this might happen?
Thanks very much.
Seems to me that there was a warning that if you wanted to use optimize
world on increments you had to do it for all of them under the one you
really wanted to optimize. I used that here and noticed only a slight
increase in size but the last incremental was not as large as yours and
was not larger than the previous incrementals.
