Hey Carl-

	I have been seeing memory leaks with the new version of rails out  
right now as well as edge. I don't think its mongrel related. But to  
be sure, can you test your app with webrick and see if you still get  
the leak? My bet is you do still get it. I haven'tbeen able to  
pinpoint it but it is very annoying. My app runs fine in production  
biut in dev mode with mongrel or webrick it keeps eating memory until  
it fails to allocate with a fatal error and kills the processes.

	Do let me know if anyone figures out why the hell dev mode is  
leaking again. I though this was fixed a while ago but its happening  
again. I think it may have something to do with the new reloading  
code in dev mode but i haven't been able to pinpoint it.
