What do you get with the following?

    COLUMNS=200 dpkg -l 'linux-image*' | sed 's!^....!!;s! .*$!!' | grep ^l

Simple deduction indicates that your problem has three (3) possible root

  [1] memory[leak?]
  [2] kernel
  [3] application

IMHO, the simplest to change, and to test, is [2].

What do you think?
