Yes, some of the files there represent your system memory, so it looks like
you have something about 4GB of RAM. /proc is a virtual filesystem, so these
files don't need your diskspace, don't worry...

I guess that the process with PID 18268 just went away while executing your
command. Maybe I'm wrong, if someone knows it better - just let me know ...
