This rings a bell...   A while ago I was hunting an elusive memory leak.  It
turned out that, after a socket was used, a chunk of memory was held
temporarily, and released sixty seconds after its use. (Imagine my suprise
after chasing THIS for several days!)  The MBUF retention you have observed
might be part of the same mechanism.
