Hi Folks,

I have been watching the repeated reports of memory leakage,
and the denials that it is happening.

I'm sorry, it just cannot be that snort can grow to a size
of 15Mb overnight unless it is leaking... there just cannot
possibly be anything that it does that really requires that
kind of memory usage!!

I will let it keep running and see if it flattens out, but
it's not looking good right now.
