I'm extremely curious that the cache doesn't clear when you restart Zope.
One would normally not expect to see this.  Can you do a "ps xauww" and mail
it to me / the list?  Also a "free" would be helpful too.  Under linux,
shared memory is amongst the last to be scavenged in low memory conditions.
I'm curious to see if something is allocating that memory as shared or what.

You might also try an "ipcs -a" command to make sure it's not SYSV type
shared memory (which can stick around even after a process exits.)
