in reply to Perl Memory problem ...

Remember that operating systems are designed to be lazy. If there's no pressure on the memory resource, it really doesn't care to reduce the exact amount that you are now using. Should pressure later develop, it will try more aggressively to determine which portions of your memory are now being used and which can be safely stolen for other purposes. But, until that actually occurs, it won't bother.
