[typo] Typo's memory footprint

FYI, I have having a serious memory leak using typo 3.99.x (I think .4,
can't remember).  It was so bad I couldn't even ssh into VPS account and I
had to get the sysadmin to restart my "server".  Anyway, I just upgraded to
4.00, couldn't have been any easier.  Taking at look at the memory usage, it
looks like this in "ps aux":

Right after starting:
root      3395 31.0 25.9  27732 24608 ?        S    10:31   0:02
/usr/bin/ruby /usr/bin/mongrel_rails start

After first hit to home page:
root      3395  5.7 26.3  28120 24980 ?        S    10:31   0:02
/usr/bin/ruby /usr/bin/mongrel_rails start

After first posted article:
root      3395 16.4 36.9  37900 34984 ?        R    10:31   1:00
/usr/bin/ruby /usr/bin/mongrel_rails start
Seems to have leveled off at the last level.  I'll let you know if I
continue to have problems or if the memory leak is indeed solved with 4.00.
I'm using apache2 mod_proxy, mongrel and sqlite on a FC4 VPS host.
