Calling the Process.exec method results in heavily increasing program size. That's for native compiled programs (.java or .class as source does not matter). java interpreted bytecode is ok.
 I can't reproduce this. Using a recent cvs tree, memory usage for your test program remains constant at 4200K (2908K shared) on a RedHat 6.2 system.
 It is possible that this is a bug in the libgcj 2.95 version you are using. I reccommend updating to a recent cvs/snapshot version of gcj & libgcj, or the one that ships with Red Hat 7.0.
