Set the MONO_GC_PRINT_STATS env var:

MONO_GC_PRINT_STATS=1 mono program.exe

and see if it's the GC heap that increases so much. If it doesn't
crease beyond a reasonable amount, we may have an unamanged memory leak.
Try running also on x86 and see if you still get the leak.
If it doesn't happen, it may be an unmanaged memory leak in the port.
