The hash table was used in my seen script that I had created for my bot. Imagine, a hash table last cleared when the bot/script was created (December 10th, 2006) and on average the bots are on 65 channels with 35 users on average, peaking at over 100 channels. After a few months the amount of unique users my bot is going to see are extremely high, which is why the hash table was 5.56 megs. I just free'ed and deleted the hash table so we can start clean. Now its at 4 kb
Hopefully this will solve the problem. *Keeps his fingers crossed*
Again, thanks for all the help.
