I realized I was wrong...
I've attached a new patch that deals only with parent area and doesn't  
free any LM. This patch adds also an "implements Serializable" in a  
class that gets cached with the area tree, and adds a command line  
flag to enable caching.
The changes in this patch are not always necessary, but in many cases  
can saves lots of memory.
