Just because top reports a higher memory usage doesn't mean the app
really uses more memory. I heard the kernel doesn't really free the
memory until it's needed.
"Inaccurate" is an understatement: the reported memory usage can be
plain wrong.

And sorry, I don't know any better tools. I don't think they exist.
Maybe you could try to use a memory leak detector instead, like memprof.
