I took a look at the C code and I can't see any obvious places where
memory gets allocated. It *could* be a problem with references in your
perl script, causing data to not get freed properly.
Alternatively it's a problem with memory fragmentation.
I'll try to set up an example script and see if I can reproduce it.
