Yes, you are correct Dave. I thought perhaps Elliot knew something about
Redhat 4 that I wasn't aware of. All my packages are up to date, and I
haven't seen any existing bugs that might cause a memory leak. I've
recorded the RAM usage of all running processes after the machine was
rebooted, and I'll record the RAM usage again after the RAM fills up to
see which process is in fact the culprit. I'll post the results in a day
or so, or as soon as the RAM is full.
