dcnetmon memory usage

Hi All,
 
I am running ITA 7 on a test server before upgrading our production ITA 6.5.
I noticed today that dcnetmon was using 440MB of RAM (explains why the box was a bit sluggish).  It's now dropped to a 'meagre' 246MB.  Is this normal for ITA 7.0?
 
I installed SP1 for 2003 on the server recently and ran the Security Configuration Wizard, which detected ITA and associated bits.  Would this have any bearing on the memory consumption?
 
Thanks,
Mark
