R memory leak using XML – gc() and rm() have no impact

I’ll try to keep it short:

My R session appears to be a lot of memory and very quickly when parsing XML. I have seen other people complaining about memory leakages when dealing with XML, some appear to to have solved the problem using gc() and rm() however these functions do not appear to help me at all.

Has anyone found an effective way of dealing with this?

Many thanks!
