Well you wont be seeing the slab if using SLUB and you ask to create a
slab of a size and with characteristics that already exists. In that case
the system simply creates an alias and reuses the existing slab.

Please use the "slabinfo" tool when using SLUB.

	slabinfo -a

will show the aliased slabs.
