Topic: "Reset Initial" memory impacts

Hey folks
What state inside of sertop is the "Reset Initial" command supposed to reset? I've been using it to run the same few proofs in a file over and over again (for some reinforcement learning experiments), but I've noticed that the memory usage of sertop is increasing every time, and that increase survives through the resets. Eventually (in my case 120-240 proofs in) it gets oom killed. Should I just be killing sertop and restarting it every once in a while to contain the memory usage, or are there tricks with Resetting that can get my same coq instance to flush whatever is taking up that memory?

Have you tried Optimize Heap. to run the GC?

Ah that did the trick. Out of curiosity, does the GC never run on it's own? Or is there just some trigger I'm not hitting?
