That would be too simple. Unfortunately, the problem is same with and 
without blocking.

The leaked memory is not allocated to any specific program. The 
yellow and blue areas in Activity Monitor get bigger and bigger and 
green smaller. I have 8 GB and am down to 150 mb free when I should 
have 4 GB free. Simply restarting Safari does not help. I need full 
restart. No problem if Ghostery is off. Or the leak is then so small 
that it is not noticeable.

Anyway, I brought this here only because Jacque mentioned Ghostery on 
the list and that is when I started using it.
