Depends on the setup. Your job may be evicted if it goes beyond 
request_memory plus some margin (if there's a corresponding definition 
in the condor_config), or it just runs happily leving lots of "free"
memory which gets scheduled to other dynamic slots on the same machine,
causing all jobs to swap (that's why most admins would have eviction
in place).
BTW, a job sent back to the queue will have the current memory footprint
attached, overwriting your initial guess.
