That's a bug which I already fixed in my patches..

In the innermost loop of parse_multipart(), it creates an immortal
bucket which is never freed. The bucket is added to "bb", but "bb" is
then assigned a new value:

            bb = apreq_value_to_param(apreq_strtoval(val))->bb;

.. and the following has no effect on the original (splitted up)
immortal bucket, it only cleans up the value bucket brigade:


I changed that to two apr_bucket_brigade_t* variables in my patch.
