Yes, that's expected. There are more widgets and pages displayed at once so that
takes up more memory. zathura holds pages in memory that have been recently
displayed so that faster scrolling is possible. Pages that haven't been
displayed for some time are purged from the memory.

Please take a look at RSS and SZ. This should give you a better idea how much
memory is used. VSZ is 200 MiB even with no document open so isn't useful here
at all. VSZ stays the same here even if I open a 100 page document here.

Please do so. If you find any memory leaks please report them at
