[PyCUDA] device.make_context() memory usage

Dear PyCuda mailing list readers,
I just wondered why pycuda is eating lots of the cards memory after
execution of the make_context() command on the device. Just more precisely
on my GeForce 8800 GT I have a global memory of 512Mb and I can see that
after the make_context command 12Mb are used.
Is this also the case if one uses only the C API?
Thank you in advance.
