You said you generally dont build from source these days. So I didnt want to 
scare you before :( - but if you are serious,

1) you need to install heap-shot
(there is a download tarball link at the bottom)

2) export BEAGLE_HEAP_SHOT_DIR=/tmp

3) Start beagled with --heap-shot

4) Heap-shot allows to checkpoint the heap status at several times by sending
$ kill -PROF <pid of beagled>
while beagled is running, sending the signal PROF to beagled dumps the current 
heap map to a file in /tmp.

Take a few snapshots and then send them to me. They should be somewhat useful. 
For baseline reference, take a snapshot when beagle starts indexing and then 
maybe 1 every 100 MB.
