Never heard of it [Azureus] pre allocating space. Did you remove the item from Azureus properly? Browse the folder where it [the download] was initially saved to see that it has been removed.

I think you mean when you want to download let's say a 2.6GB file. Then the program will save 2.6GB of space right away. Usually this goes away after you finish (well not really because then you have the file.
But if you are saying that after you finish downloading the 2GB file, another 2GB is still used, then you got a problem.
Usually these files are located somewhere, look for it and delete them. Check in the program settings to see where the temp folder is.
