my new best friend is /perl-status (mod_perl's interactive status and 
info tool).  If you do any mod_perl coding and haven't touched /perl-status 
yet, go read the mod_perl guide and get up to speed on it. right now. 
really. I mean it.

I believe that the horrible horrible memory I saw leaking was in fact due
to some upsetting interactions between Apache::Session and 

While I was poking around, I also finally got the full picture of just
how upsettingly heavy Date::Manip is.. By itself, it was eating almost
as much memory as all of RT.    I've moved RT over to Date::Parse from
Graham Barr. It's much smaller (236,606 bytes compared to 1,610,254 bytes)
It doesn't have as many bells and whistles, but it's less likely to take you
on a tour of your server's swap partition.

In the 72 hours, The Beta 3 bug list has dropped from 28 issues to 13 issues.
We're starting to get there.
