If you're getting a lot of passwords cracked as I had suspected, then it
is fully expected that memory usage will grow a lot when running with
"--fork".  So there's no need for you to debug this, we're aware of it.
OTOH, if you see similar behavior without "--fork" or/and with no or few
successful cracks, then that could be worth looking into.
