Sorry I made a mistake, it was some time ago when I did the tests and I don't have the sources. It wasn't 200K I got confused, I think the size difference was something like 2K.

Your test program is a bit simplistic, you need to call functions to insert items into list, then traverse the list, deleting every item. This is more or less what real code does.

So 2K is not a huge size, but it's still much more than similar implementation in C. In a large program bloat from STL can add up pretty quickly.
