I'm on very thin ice here, but yeah, I guess this could be related to shared 
classloaders. Anyway, I was just curious to see if those queries showed 
references to the logging API, which I would not have been able to explain. Your 
OQL results look similar to the results I get from running a short Derby test, 
which was somewhat comforting. There may be some OQL query or some other jhat 
feature that may be helpful, but unfortunately I don't have any specific 
suggestions at the moment. Others are welcome to chime in!

You mentioned that you would eventually run out of PermSpace memory if you do 
not do anything about this. Did you actually test that, so that you know it for 
a fact?

There was an issue [1] recently with OutOfMemoryErrors after repeated calls to 
boot and shutdown a database, it may or may not be related. It has been fixed in 
the trunk (and will be included in the next feature release). If you do run out 
of memory, and nothing else helps, you may want to try out some jars from a 
trunk build (see [2] for easy access).
