I did modify the progress display to show accounted memory that was allocated vs memory that was freed but still not released to the system. At least that gives you an idea of memory allocation and fragmentation with glibc in real time:

Note: I didn't know what unit of memory those blocks represents, so the shift is most probably wrong.

Me neither, but it appears to me as if hblkhd holds the actual memory consumed by the process. It seems to store the information in bytes, which I find a bit dubious unless glibc has some internal multiplier.
