Low level parts of the GC were rewritten in 3.11.  Well, the way that
it gets blocks of memory off the operating system anyhow ...

So maybe upgrading to 3.11 is an option for you?  I don't know whether
it will make a difference, but it's possible it will change the
behaviour and 3.11 is quite stable so it's unlikely to introduce any
regressions.
