Ah, thanks for the nice explanation, Toby. I don't want to abuse your or 
others time too much, but since this might be interesting in general 
too, I'll give some more data. To be clear, I don't want to really trace 
down that leak, we live with it for nearly a year now, the server will 
be replaced soon, but I'm smelling some zen and my appetite is whet.

- I did paste only the objects which have such a high count (next one 
was approx 200).
- This server (2.3.3) has no special products on it, just 2 Folderish 
ZClasses, which are heavily used (they construct the whole site).

So, can we rule out that there's a bug in the zclasses machinery which 
is the cause for this? I.e. should there be some zclass related object 
in the above list otherwise?

Is it right that in Zope 2.3.x (and others?) usage of
<dtml-var "REQUEST.set(...)"> can lead to such leakage?

Is there a description somewhere what the basic causes of such leakages 
are? I.e. only bugs in python c-code/zope c-code?

Is there some text about what to not do in python product development to 
avoid introducing leakage? For example, on #zope someone pointed out to 
me that storing acquisition wrappers in the ZODB will lead to leakage.

cheers,
oliver
