Thanks, I included that fix in my ZUI library, it could hang there very long if not this resolution now. It is still quite interesting why VIRT raises and RES actually drops, below is example htop report:

  PID USER     PRI  NI  VIRT   RES   SHR S CPU% MEM%   TIME+  Command
50574 sgniazdo  31   0 55.2G 1319M     0 R 93.0 16.1  0:00.49 zsh-5.3.1-dev-0 -i
