No, that's what I meant with windows not releasing the memory immediately.
The virtual memory set of an application doesn't tell you anything but
how many dll's it has loaded and how much memory those dll's use. And
since dll's are shared between processes (of the same user), the amount
of the virtual set can be much bigger than the actual RAM.
