This isn't a feature of Twisted, so there's no simple flag you can pass
or alternate API you can use to avoid it.  Perhaps you can share a minimal,
self-contained example program which produces this behavior and someone can
point out what the cause of the memory use is.  Make sure the example is
short (does not contain code unrelated to the high memory usage) and can be
run to produce the problem.
