Is it possible that the modules you're using do a lot of work after the
compile phase? For example, if they use autoloading or pull in a lot of
other modules conditionally later on with require statements that will
result in things being compiled after startup and thus not shared.
You amount of shared memory seems very low to me, so I think there's
something that these modules are doing that is working against sharing.
