If by "not causing problems elsewhere" you mean it's not affecting other processes, that's mostly true. You can, of course, run into an Out Of Memory (OOM) situation, where all the RAM and swap is marked as "in use", and Bad Things start happening. Assuming you've got a 64 bit OS with lots of RAM and swap configured, (heck, even a 32 bit OS with good Virtual Memory), that's only likely to happen if you've got a lot of memory allocated.

As a rule of thumb, you should clean up memory when it's no longer needed. Think of it like craftsmanship. A piece of Faberge jewelry shows attention to detail from both the back and the front. Freeing up unused memory is part of the attention to detail, just like closing files after use, for example.
