[PD] msgfile massive memory usage

Hi list,
Can anyone (especially IOhannes) explain this to me - when I attempt to load a file of 2.8Mb in size into msgfile, Pd reports memory usage going up to 9+ Gb? It seems rather a lot. The files are storage of grain windows, each of which is 4096 points in size. With 74 of them it's 9Gb.
When I use a patch to generate the windows I store them in the msgfile object, and with over 130 of them there is only about 370Mb of reserved memory.
PS I tried to send the offending text file before but it was too big for the 2000K limit of Pd messages - you can view / download it at http://sharktracks.co.uk/puredata/newGrainWindows.win
