Why did you require it and then load it again?  But anyway, simply
loading preview but not using it shouldn't have a major effect on

Hm, I usually don't use preview, too.  But I've just tested it on some
document including at least some math formulas and some images, and it
works fine.  When I do M-x preview-document, the preview images are
generated into somy my-doc.prv/ subfolder and inserted into the document
buffer.  At that point, the memory usage increases a bit.  But shortly
after I do M-x preview-clearout-buffer and all preview images are
removed, memory seems to be returned back and the emacs process consumes
about the same as before...

Could you try to reproduce the leak starting with "emacs -Q", adding
this to *scratch* and evaling it (C-x C-e after the closing paren)?
