Phillip J. Eby identified a memory leak in GenericUserFolder over the
weekend. I'm just downloading LoginManager now to see if I can steal
their fix :-) (Oh... thats easy. Just search for 'Waaaaaaa!')
There is also a good chance that this is also causing the SQLSession
leak - GUF is maintaining a reference to REQUEST (in a nice circular
way causing the memory leak), and REQUEST maintains a reference to
the SESSION, so the SESSION won't be freed.
I should have a patch available shortly. I would appreciate people
who know how to drive the debuggers better than I confirming that
the leak is gone.
