That's not correct, it's about 3.5 MB allocated - but we only transfer 640KB at a key length of 10.

Apparently it always allocates bitmap structs for 32 million hashes regardless of actual number loaded. And it allocates some kind of hash table with a fixed size of 512 MB. I presume this will be dynamically allocated later.
