Hi Chris.
I'm not sure about .28, but .29 (+aprtableget patch from 30) seems 
pretty stable for us, and we haven't seen that memory growth you 
describe. does the RSS size constantly grow from the start, or does
it sit still for a period of time and then start increasing.
also it could be a module you are running.
