I'm reasonable sure I got the leaks with apache 1.3.27 and 
mod_perl 1.27.  I don't know about newer versions.

I've looked again and can't find the code I used, I think it
was defining a sub which was probably the leak.

I took the "if you're running Perl code during restart" to include
dynamic configuration code.  I don't really understand the process
so I'll defer to you.  I'd just like to see <perl> sections mentioned
as a possible culprit.
