[Mongrel] Mongrel and memory usage

I'm running a Rails application which must sort and manipulate a lot of data
which are loaded in memory.
The Rails app runs on 2 mongrel processes.
When I first load the app, both are 32Mb in memory.
After some days, both are between 200Mb and 300Mb.

My question is : is there some kind of garbage collector in Mongrel?
I never see the two Mongrel processes memory footprint decrease.
Is it normal?

I use Mongrel 1.0.1 with Rails 1.2.3 on Debian.

Best regards,
