I could be wrong here, but aren't both seamonkey-bin & FahCore_a3.exe 32bit applications? That would mean that you're likely loading both 32bit and 64bit versions of a number of libraries. Would certainly count towards a higher memory usage. -- Darragh "Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool."
