Thanks. Sure and as Bob Ippolito mentioned the limits are way too low on Macs.

Anyhow, the problem at the end was that I recompiled erlang with new limits and
kernel poll enabled but when starting VM did not have +K true. Adding that to
the startup made all problems disappear and my RAM is well under control, where
I'd expect it to be.

Cheers,
Alex.
