Internet Explorer 7 - Poor Memory Management

OK, I've had an IE window open for about a week now. I've closed down the 50-odd tabs I had open (would have had another 200-odd tabs open during that time though not concurrently), leaving it with an empty tab:

What does Task Manager think about it?

Hmm... My Firefox 2.0 footprint was smaller than that...

IE8 Beta might be getting an install shortly...

Just thought i'd comment to say i get similar behaviour

It's usually when i've had google reader or google mail open for a period of time
Closing IE down altogether gives me my memory back but still a little worrying!
