The memory usage graph in Live connect shows less RAM in use than expected

PROBLEM
When you load live connect, you notice that the Memory usage chart appears to be showing less RAM in use than you expect / task manager is showing on the machine

CAUSE
This is not a fault. Task manager will show the amount of physical RAM in use in its chart, but will also show the amount of physical + virtual RAM in use. These can be 2 very different values.
If you have 512MB physical RAM + 8GB Pagefile (Virtual RAM), and you are using  512MB RAM, then you will see thse 2 very different results
Physical RAM available - 0MB (100% in use)
Virtual RAM available - 8GB (6.25% in use)

Lice connect will show the 6.25% value, not the 100%

SOLUTION / WORKAROUND
This is not a problem, so there is no solution for this.
