We're using a global %session hash, which is undef 'fed when the session is 
I'm not reading in large data sets, but even if I did that should grow the 
child process,
not the parent process, right ?

The application I'm talking about is WebGUI, a CMS written in perl. I've 
mailed the
WebGUI list earlier today. It seems that the people running on Linux don't 
have the
problem that's causing me pain. That's why I start to believe that it's a 
FreeBSD/mod_perl issue.

The problem is not limited to WebGUI, I also have it on two boxes that serve 
results. The only thing that's running there is SOAP::Lite, HTML::Template, 
and Cache::FileCache. After two months that http root process has grown from 
20MB to 185MB.
