Memory increase with https requests

Hi Team,

We are using curl version 7.35 and 7.40 in our project and running in
linux. When we make https requests via *curl_easy_perform()* call, there is
a regular memory increase of process VIRT and RAM sections seen from top
command. Amount of memory increase is based on number of https requests
made. *curl_easy_cleanup() *call is made at the end of every request.

Memory increase is not seen with http requests.

Please let me know, do we have any issues related to this already and there
is some standard way to make curl calls for https requests.If there is a
known patch for this, please share the same. We may not want to upgrade the
curl package at this moment, but can apply the patch.
