SecureCRT is Memory Intensive

I am using SecureCRT 5.0.0 (build 871).

I normally set my session buffer very high (say 32000, tell me if i am crazy). I have set my logical rows to 53 and logical columns to 139. When i set SecureCRT to full screen, rows=65 and cols=161

When i launch SecureCRT, my virtual memory usage is 3.5Mb.

When i create a new session, my virtual memory size is 135Mb. This is after i connect to the server and i haven't run any command yet.

When i create a tabbed session, my virtual memory is 267Mb.

When i create another tabbed session, my virtual memory is 398Mb.

With 3 tabbed session, my Memory Usage is 271Mb and my Virtual Memory is 398Mb.

My main memory jumps from 8Mb to 140Mb the moment i open a second session and to 271Mb when i open a third session.

Is it possible for the program to allocate less memory in the beginning? I am running low on resources. Is it possible for the program to allocate more memory when it requires it?

Or am i configuring the program incorrectly?
