It looks like you're leaking requests. This is often the consequence of
setting an attribute on the REQUEST object which is aquisition wrapped.
REQUEST.adtmldoc = REQUEST['PARENTS']
When requests leak, references to all the objects referenced within the
request (acquisition wrappers, etc.) leak as well. This can be
disastrous and gets worse when the site is busy (when there are more
It used to be the case that tracking this problem down was tediously
difficult, and involved basically a binary search for leaks in all
methods on the site. But now, finding the cause is likely a job for
Shane's LeakFinder product:
Note that this is likely caused by some sort of brainbending circular
reference problem that might be helped by Python 2.X's cyclic garbage
