You should use a better method to aquire the memory usage information. I
use getrusage() on linux, you should look for something similar.

Just don't care about this. First there is a virtual size (the amount of
memory allocated) and a physical size (the amount of physical RAM used)
of your process. The first number is meaningless (at least on linux -
you call easily allocate 3 GB memory), the second gives a rought
estimate how much actually is used.
