The good thing is that I've learned so much about settings now I don't imagine i'll ever have a memory problem again.

App Brain made the process almost painless
AppBrain - the best Android apps and games on the Android market

NOW I KNOW
The killer is FACEBOOK & TWITTER contact sync turning that setting off makes a huge difference in memory.
The reason i know is contact storage used to be my largest app at a whopping, obese 455MB.
Now my largest app is a 7MB game i now this through
SETTINGS>MANAGE APPLICATIONS (Sort by size)

So i believe CONTACT SYNC in FB & Twitter was tripling my contact storage needs- a huge memory hog.
now contact storage has a beach body- super small.
I have the problem now, but never used Facebook or Twitter (really) and HTC mail was 0 kb cached. Whatever happened, it goes away when removing a few apps, but comes back again if I install more again- regardless of what apps. I only have 35 contacts and the space is a few megs. The problem is more than just related to those apps.
