getrusage

When I call resource.getrusage on Linux, I don't get any memory stats:

Python 2.2.2 (#1, Jan 30 2003, 21:26:22) 
[GCC 2.96 20000731 (Red Hat Linux 7.3 2.96-112)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> from resource import getrusage,RUSAGE_SELF
>>> print getrusage(RUSAGE_SELF)
(0.019531, 0.0078119999999999995, 0, 0, 0, 0, 178, 387, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)
>>> 

On AIX, I get the correct numbers.

What is the goal?  I need to find a memory leak in an extension module.
For starters, I was going to find extension method calls that produce
unexpected memory use (and I found some on AIX - but our 12 year old AIX
system is *so* slow).  Suggestions are welcome.
