obviously you're cursed 8-)

Those caches should be reclaimed when an application wants
memory. I'm somewhat puzzled as to why this isn't happening.
It probably warrants further investigation upstream at some point.

For FC1 it's unlikely to get fixed given the time left before
it gets EOL'd, unless someone has a revelation sometime soon.
