Memory usage seems to increase on every :reload of interpreted code; I understand that the bytecode isn't being GCed. This is rather inconvenient for development on a memory constrained system.

difficulty: Unknown

Object code is not GC'd, but byte-code certainly should be. It's not impossible we have a space leak though.

OK, since the behaviour I described isn't known I'll provide proper reproduction instructions.
