ap_mpm_pod_signal in mpm_common.c is guilty.  Every time this function
is called by perform_idle_server_maintenance, the parent leaks another
apr_sockaddr_t.  When the parent forks off new children, they inherit
the bloat factor.  Setting MaxRequestsPerChild small doesn't help in
this case; restarting the server is the only circumvention.

Here's my plan:  change the pod creation code to create a single
apr_sockaddr_t containing the loopback address etc.  Hang it off the
pod, and use it from there when needed in ap_mpm_pod_signal.
