It's not just a .42 issue though. I'm using 2.3.41 and to my untutored
eye it doesn't appear to shrink.

[root@wr5z /root]# cat /proc/meminfo
total: used: free: shared: buffers: cached:
Mem: 63610880 52514816 11096064 0 499712 19607552
Swap: 73990144 2658304 71331840

and /proc/slabinfo shows:
inode_cache 46489 57576
bdev_cache 21 63
signal_queue 1 29
kiobuf 0 0
buffer_head 8293 8400
mm_struct 26 50
vm_area_struct 479 693
dentry_cache 18799 45415
