It's quite difficult to get this output, due to the fact that one can't move 
the mouse pointer at the time (!!), but I imanged to discover that when 
running with mod_perl, the process hogging the memory was apache.

It's running on my desktop machine (I installed it with the intention of 
developing scrips), but the only processes running are the waiting browser, 
and the occasional mp3 player (which would start skipping at this point).
