Hi Beniamin,
Sounds like we've got a memory leak...

Is this G 2.1.1?
Do you have a sample app that can demonstrate the problem?
Do you have the stack trace for the remove(entity) call, that you're  
Running with the following JAVA_OPTS should yield additional info...

JAVA_OPTS="-Xmx512m -XX:MaxPermSize=128m -verbose:gc -XX: 
+PrintGCDetails -XX:+HeapDumpOnOutOfMemoryError"

Set the heap and permgen sizes as appropriate to your application  
environment. The smaller the better... The PrintGCDetails will  
indicate if we losing memory. If you are running out of memory, a heap  
dump which we can use to help diagnose.
