BTW, does our libc use mmap() and munmap() when malloc() is called?
Or is it the X server which calls these routines?

If I managed to make the call treshold higher, I should see these
routines being called less often, right?  This might help me a bit
until the real fix arrives (someone has created a child process inside
his/her head to find a solution to the problem, right? :-)
