Use ps(1) and/or top(1) to see where the memory is going.

On FreeBSD, you can also use kldstat(1) to get some info on the kernel, use the -v flag, I *think* the size column in the size in bytes (Values seem about right on my system, but I didn't check it!).
OpenBSD doesn't have kldstat, I'm not sure how to get this information on OpenBSD.
UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.
