memory handling: should memory ever go down?

No, memory does not go down. The way the memory allocation works in the PBX is that is does perform a garbage collection, but never returns memory to the OS. This is because of the real-time nature of the PBX and the requirement that it should run "forever" (or the next software update). Otherwise, you'll sooner or later up with memory fragmentation, that's where on the paper the process owns only relatively small amount of memory, but the OS cannot allocate new any more.
