I tried this and got the same result, i.e. growth.

The growth is not constant. It grows in the beginning, then no growth for 
a while and then it starts again and so on. I usually try to let it run 
for about 30minutes or something.

FYI: I'm using /proc/<pid>/smaps to check memory usage. save the output to 
a file and then diff it to check growth.
