What are possible reasons for memory consumption going up on stack that isn't doing much?

Pulling the fullclipboarddata could end up doing a bit of work depending on what is on it. You would probably be better off using the rawclipboarddata to avoid LC doing any processing just so you can detect changes.

Under normal circumstances, the various flavors of content will reflect the same thing. If concerned with style changes, then html may be the best one to check. If you are not, then a plain text variant would be simpler (I.e. shorter) to check.
