Java Private Bytes Increase

Hi Everyone,
We are currently having an issue where the OS Virtual Memory allocated for java increases. Let me put our Environment.

Server � 4GB Physical RAM / 4 Xeon Processors.
OS � Windows 2003 server.
Application Server � tomcat 5.0.27 (A cluster of three nodes), with ISAPI Redirector 2 with IIS 6.0.
Java - jdk1.5.0
Java options used - -server -Xmx512m -XX:MaxNewSize=256m -Xminf.5 -Xmaxf.8 -XX:NewSize=2m -XX:NewRatio=3 -Xcompactgc -XX:+UseParallelGC -XX:+UseAdaptiveSizePolicy -XX arallelGCThreads=4 -XX:+CMSClassUnloadingEnabled -XX:MaxPermSize=256m -Xms256m -Xloggc:C:\logs\gc_log.log -XX:+PrintTLE

Now my problem is this, all three nodes start of without any problem and works for a while. Then the Virtual Memory (Private Bytes) on the OS and the Working Set increases as we work, then when the GC runs and the Working Set�s memory reduces, but the Virtual memory keeps on increases, after the VM reaches about 1GB the server hangs up.
What I would like to know is the following,
1.If have set the setting of maximum heap size as 512m, then why is the VM growing up to 1GB?
2.If the working set is reducing, then why is the VM keep on increasing?
3.Is there a setting to clear the VM on the OS?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
