Thanks a bunch guys!

I pruned the modules loading and that did the job, although I found 
something interesting in doing so:

Removing modules one by one seemed to have virtually no effect until I 
got to chan_iax2.so.  Removing this module dropped memory consumption 
from 209mb to 16mb (looking at the RES column in the output of `top'). 

Once again, thanks for your suggestions ... Works like a charm!

Kind Regards,
Larry

Here is a future timesaver - use this command to see what is eating the
asterisk memory before you start removing stuff:
Pmap -d `pgrep asterisk`

This will run a pmap on the active asterisk process
