Memory leaks in long-running perl programs should be more or less
expected.  I thought both mod_perl and fastcgi had mechanisms to
kill and restart the processes after a certain amount of service.
You shouldn't have to kill the whole apache process to accomplish
this although I don't know exactly what does control it in fastcgi.
