I think the maintainer is just trying to find the cause of the memory build
up. He is trying to narrow down the problem. He is not suggesting shifting
stable users to experimental as a long term solution. Conside for example,
another user reading the same bug report and running experimental.He might
be willing to take up the task. I personally do not see anything wrong with
the maintainer's response.
