You're using process explorer, not task manager, and process explorer
does not interact well with Cygwin for whatever reason. In this case it
seems the procexp is computing the VM size wrong. If you use task
manager and look at the "VM size" column it will be correct. You'll
have to take this up with sysinternals.com, it's not on topic for this
The "VM size" column is not a good measure of the actual memory used.
It does not correlate in any way to real memory, hence virtual. You
should consider the "working set" column if you want to know how much
memory a process is actually using.
