my perl CGI script appears to leak, runs out of memory

           Summary: my perl CGI script appears to leak, runs out of memory
           Product: Apache httpd-2.0
           Version: 2.0.39
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: FreeBSD
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: mod_cgi
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: duncan.lindley@computershare.com.au


I have a standard apache 2 compile, i have configured suexec, and execcgi on the
default cgi root.

I have gnatsweb, and gnats4 being tested, I added some functionality to (the
already 4000+line) gnatsweb script. it still runs under strict;

I found that with my added code, I would run out of memory on large gnats
databases. (I make a 2d hash to count bugs by state/person/category).
The code appears fine and I have had other programmers double check.

I could run out of memory faster by assinging more varibles (unused ad
overwritten in a foreach loop) like $str = $counts{$fullname."_".$_}+0; not an
uncommon command or worthy of losing memory over.

I also, can rename the script form gnatsweb.pl to gnatsweb12345678.pl and the
script would stop 8 chars shorter.
I looked thru the docco a little, and i had a poke in bungzilla but have not
found anything.

This does not happen to me on 1.3, although I have not compiled suexec, this
script was not configured to run under suexec on the 2.0.39 install..

I'm happy to do some debugging for you guys if you need.

Thanks!!
