Puzzled about stack size

This happened to me a couple of weeks ago. A stack that was about 150K
suddenly became 3MB. It turned out that I was saving all my logging data in
a particular field and it was just growing and growing. When I cleared out
that field the saved stack size returned to just 150K.
