OMG you are right :/

The problem seems to be with the progress indicators which use  
tm_dialog (brought up e.g. by Subversion commands). The nib is  
(probably) never disposed (retain cycle?) and so the window still  
exists, and so does the animated progress bar, which will keep doing  
its stuff, even though the window is closed/gone.

I’ll look into it.
