Application size grows from @180 to >560 and slows down the game.

Brought up on vet chat: A question for foldit concerning the new ideal loop filter: Is anyone else with a Mac experiencing worse “application bloat” since it was rolled out? The application size gets bigger faster and the puzzles with mutate (like 1251) run much slower than before the filter went main. I’m on a 3.4 GHz Intel Quad Core i7 mac with 24 gig RAM & an NVIDIA GeForce GTX video card with 2 gigs RAM and still bog down on these.
Player Marktoo mentioned:
Having to install a fresh client after every puzzle that uses this filter as the application size goes from about 180 to nearly 600 megs through a puzzle cycle.
I have a 4.4GHz i7, 32gig RAM and a GTX 980ti with 4gig on Win7 pro and it's painfully slow for me too. Haven't noticed any large increases in app size but I dont pay much attention to it so probably wouldnt
Once the application size on the Mac increases to a certain point, any other client I run (whether it has the ideal loops filter or not) runs very slow. Thus the need to reinstall fresh.
This has been happening since I started playing Foldit in 2014... but is worse with the ideal loops filter. Am checking the "handle leaks" links jeff101 recommended and wanted to get this recorded
