It's mostly just OSX's malloc that is obscenely expensive beyond a certain
size. But that threshold is more like 16k or so. On Linux, it's 128k
instead, but if both thresholds were the same, you'd see that Linux
takes this change well, whereas OSX does not.
The threshold corresponds to when malloc switches from doing its own
memory management, to just delegating its job to the kernel.
