I forgot to write I applied the following settings (suggested by Sherman 
Chan thanks to him for that and some others found in an IBM-Oracle paper, 
I also use some of them on my linux-Lotus Notes servers) to sysctl.conf 

kernel.shmmax = 2147483648
kernel.shmmni = 4096
kernel.shmall = 2097152
kernel.sem = 512        64000   128     512
fs.file-max = 65536

How many connections does that server have? That's a lot of memory to 

There are a few fixes for memory leaks that I just commited to CVS. They
should be in 2.4.5 when we release it later today.

Though these memory leak fixes are for userland, not kernel space. Can you
try adding compress=no to your conn definitions and see if the problem
becomes less?
