:> just to add to debgging info:
:> when system boots up:
:please do not hijack my thread, your data seems unrelated.

    Ha ha... Simon is on a roll here!

:> top -S outputs:
:> Inactive Mem: 8M, Free Mem: 1810M
:it probably also tells you about wired, buffer and active, right?
:> is there a memory leak? or is it stored in objcache?
:i think you're not reading the data correctly.
:  simon

    There's no leak (in KMs post).  The OS keeps as few 'free' pages
    around as it can.  As many are possible are used to cache filesystem

    Simon found the leak in the linux exec code, nice!
