Aha... Many of these PDFs live in /tmp. Evince watches the directory holding the PDF so that it can (for better or for worse) auto-refresh if the file its displaying gets replaced with an updated version. Instead, it just gets a bunch of update events for all of the "vteXXXX" files that are actually deleted(!) but still open for all of my umpteen gnome-terminal windows.
Wow, is THAT a worthless use of resources!
