Try adding:

	config detection: mwm

vs.

	config detection: ac

By doing that you're changing from the new detection engine (mwm) to the
older one (ac).  And yes, those letters mean something--I just can't
recall all the names right now.  Aho-Corsac and <something> else.  :)

I think that will give you the memory footprint you expect.

Cheers!
