The difference may be because I'm running a 64-bit version of Lua.

Now this is interesting. I see this behavior too.  However, if I don't
put it in a function and just run the code twice then the memory usage
doubles which is what is happening in my application.

I'm now also thinking this must be an OS issue rather than Lua.
