[systemd-devel] Documentation question

I have got a little further in diagnosing this "memory leak" of 
systemd-journal. It appears to worsen when I have a process that emits 
data to stdout. I presume that systemd-journal is attempting to put this 
somewhere but failing, and consequently is buffering it in its own 
process. Where is this logging supposed to go, and can I redirect it to 
somewhere benign such as /dev/null?
