I think you measured your RAM consumption wrong.

Linux uses all free RAM as HDD cache. That's what is used in "buffers".
That is, it's not "free", but it would be free if any process would
sbrk(). My guess is that you only looked at the "free" number going down
and concluded your program is eating your RAM. Which it wasn't.

Cheers
