I think you followed Lennart's presentation @LAC2010  explaining the
motivation for this: Pulseaudio keeps buffers sometimes 10 secs long or
even more. The reason for that is to have the CPU wake up as little as
possible in order to save power.
That PA does not release that memory is either a bug or because of the
way it got killed.
FWIW jackd also locks ~80MB in /dev/shm here.
