perlguts.pod (and maybe the XS docs) will tell you about Perl internals, and
perhaps with a memory mapper you could see what is going on.
If you are keeping everything in memory, I imagine that could get pretty
big, especially since XML::Parser and the XSLT modules I have heard of keep
a lot of redundant and meta- data. Other issues could be circular
references, which prevent proper garbage collection.
If you are amenable to sending your source code, I wouldn't mind taking a
look at it ;-)
