That's a valid point, and I can clarify. 

During the first phase, all the long lived connections are made. During the second phase, newly-created short lived connections send messages to the long lived ones. 

The long lived connection are all connected when the first memory increase phase ends, which is when the short-lived connections start sending messages. 

What is unclear to me is why the second memory increase phase happens quite some time after these short lived processes have started sending messages.
