Have you checked any of the php websites for patches ?  I haven't used PHP
much but when I worked with ColdFusion Server, we found it had quite a few
memory leaks and had to patch that up (vs the netscape server).  If you are
webhosting, could also be some bad piece of code someone wrote.  I think
there is some sort of php function you can use to test your PHP garbage
collector (leak() or something like that).  Just another avenue to test out.
