Considering that multirec went in not too long ago, I'd classify your
setup as extreme.

40% of what? Nowhere have you specified how much actual RAM you have.
40% of 512MB is acceptable, 40% of 4GB would be crazy.

No one is psychic, no one is saying your lying, stamping your feet
isn't providing more information.

If its a leak, valgrind is the best option, otherwise you'll be
looking for a needle in a haystack. Diagnosing the issue without a
valgrind log would be damm near impossible.
