Hi kal,
first: thanks for your efforts!

I tried this and the leak became invisible. But then I found that if you'd take away the sleep(1) it still grows.
As a matter of fact: with the perl interpreter intitialising stuffed into main it grows only every 30 calls or something like that -> ?!?!

Just to be sure I removed the call_perl()-statement from the loop and it didn't leak...

    Just a stab in the dark but why not fork a child to do you loop? After you are down with the loop the child ends and should not the memory be reclaimed?

      Good point ...
      BUT only for this cooked down example. We actually need to get data from that perl call back into the main program. That is database access via DBI, reading (and parsing ;-) of text-files, evaluating perl code that gets some configuration etc....

      Regards Stefan K
