  The server caches requests and responses for a time, so if you kill
the server immediately after a response is sent, there may be many
requests and responses still in memory.

  i.e. memory *lost* while it is running is bad.  Slow memory growth
over time is bad.  The problems you're seeing are likely unimportant.

  If you leave the server running, does it's total memory use grow over
time?  If not, there's probably no memory leak.
