Strange poolmon output

I’ve got the following from a poolmon log from a customer:

Tag Type Allocs Frees Diff Bytes Per Alloc
TCA4 Nonp 538987844 1 538987843 0 0

No, that’s not my tag. I don’t know whose it is.

This looks very strange. I have verified that poolmon reports positive
bytes for zero sized allocations (to account for pool header). Even if it
didn’t, 538 million allocations means about 4GB of pool header. Obviously

Anyone know what would cause something like this?
