VMWare 3.0 memory usage?

Has anybody else noticed that guests running under VMWare Fusion 3.0 seem to be using quite a bit of memory compared to 2.0? Under 2.0, my Vista VM seemed to only use the amount of memory that was actually "in use". Under 3.0, my vmware-vmx processes all seem to be using the full amount of memory allocated to the virtual machine, plus 300-400MB additional RAM (2.37GB for 2GB VM), according to the "real mem" columns in Activity Monitor.
