Virtual memory use is pretty much useless, because it doesn't tell you
how much memory an application actually uses. Even released memory
(memory the application has already freed and given back to the system)
will still show up there, and it will keep showing up there until the OS
needs the memory for something else. Only then will the virtual memory
not be shown as in use by that application.

If you really have problems, deactivate the cache and use "shell"
overlays or none at all.
