I think the settings effect the cache size. Besides other data  
structures that need space there is ofcourse the code itself, all the  
shared libs that are mapped etc. This ps command likely shows the sum  
of everything. Depends a little on what OS you are using. If it is a  
Solaris 10 or better OS than you could use pmap -xsa command to show  
what is actually using what.
