CYGWIN_NT-6.1 HARRYR-PC 3.0.1(0.338/5/3) 2019-02-20 10:19 x86_64 Cygwin
GNU Emacs 26.1 (build 1, x86_64-unknown-cygwin, GTK+ Version 3.22.28) of 2018-05-28

I got egg on my face with my last post to Cygwin.  So, no, I'm not claiming
there is a memory leak, but rather how to test what's going on.

I don't know if this is relevant.  I got this error when I started emacs with -Q option:
** (emacs:2017): WARNING **: Error retrieving accessibility bus address: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ChildExited: Process org.a11y.Bus exited with status 1

After opening one directory with C-x d the emacs-X11.exe memory (private working set) was 28,000K as reported by Windows Task Manager.
This continues to grow.  After 15 minutes it is now about 44,000K.

This started happening about the time I upgraded to Cygwin 3.0.x.
