Yes. The internal memory management in Mathematica is far from that is 
expected. The only way to avoid this (as I know) is to use the MathLink and 
NETLink. It is possible to control the memory usage of working MathKernel by 
another MathKernel (that may be called as MasterKernel). The MasterKernel 
just commands WorkingKernel to evaluate some command and then saves the 
result. If the memory used by WorkingKernel is larger that you want the 
MasterKernel terminates the WorkingKernel and starts another WorkingKernel 
with new command. If you are interested in details I can explain more.
