Mine is using 17M physical memory (16M shared) and 58M virtual memory
while displaying the main menu after 44 1/2 CPU hours (just upgraded my
TV to a digital TV, so I had to change my resolution) during which I've
watched several shows and used plugins--and I'm now using a 1920x1080 X
and Myth GUI resolution.

So, the only help I can really provide is that this is not normal and is
not a Myth bug. So, it's probably a configuration problem. The
question then becomes, "Configuration of what?"
