Well, bind will use memory for things other than cache.

Try accessing the statistics XML channel over HTTP with a browser; it'll 
render to HTML via stylesheet, and show you memory context usage. Have a 
look and see what stands out.

FWIW, max-cache-size works fine for us on 9.10.2-P4, and limits it to 
the appropriate value. We see this reflected in RSS as well.
