Also see:

The target milestone version is NSS 3.16, if you set the
NSS_SDB_USE_CACHE environment variable to "yes" or "no" then the
measuring of nonexistent files is skipped, these were causing memory
consumption of the dentry cache when using curl on RHEL6 (buillt with
NSS) to make many HTTPS connections/requests.
