OK, this seems to be similar to a bug introduced then fixed a week or so ago related to make-instance; if I change all of my object creation to use:

(#/instanceWithSomething: ns:ns-some-class-or-other something)

instead of:

(make-instance 'ns:ns-some-class-or-other :with-something something)

then the memory leak goes away
