Your supplied output doesn't support this assertion:

Total CPU time used since startup (up 9:06) is just under a second,
this seems pretty reasonable to me.
Resident size is just over a megabyte, this isn't wholly unreasonable.
If you're looking at that 19MB figure for virtual size, I'd direct you
to the line immediately above (for top itself):

That's curiously 19MB too isn't it? :-) That 19MB figure is almost
certainly the overhead of loading libc, translation updates, and so on.
It could be the overhead of copy-on-write maps for relocation as well.

There's no evidence that init is taking more memory than expected or
slowing down your machine (0.99s total CPU time in over 9 hours is not
going to make any difference).
If you want to know which process is causing you issues, it's the one at
the TOP of the top output:
> 29577 bob 20 0 1346m 403m 49m R 100 10.2 47:49.23
Have you ever, ever felt like this?
Had strange things happen? Are you going round the twist?
