Moreover, this memory is not freed even when JtR proceeds to further modes (such as "1/2", which means wordlist mode). In your case, I suggest that you skip this mode altogether, since the hashes are not salted and thus you can achieve the same results without per-user targeting. Just use "--wordlist" and "--incremental" and many other modes explicitly, and you'll likely be able to use more processes right away (than you would have with the default selection of modes, which starts with "single crack"). Then to simulate "single crack" mode, you'll use a wordlist containing the usernames, etc. along with "--rules=single" or even "--rules=all", and then you'll complete it with "--loopback" mode.
