My bet is that your memory is used up to store the Out[..]
expressions.
Try:
$HistoryLength=0;
and then:
MemoryInUse[]
memorySoaker[...]
MemoryInUse[]
MemoryInUse[]
(*Yes, twice...despite $HistoryLength=0 Mathematica still stores the
previous expression*)
I must note that there are no new symbols created inside Compile..
Moral lesson: when looking for memory leaks, the storage of Out[..] is
the usual suspect.
