One thing that I have noticed is that in my current 50K-request loop (one request after the other, non-stop, no idle time between them), the memory usage creeps up slowly (between 09:26 and 12:09 the RSS grew by 2408K). 

I'll change the loop to include a 3 second delay between requests to watch connections being closed and then re-opened once this finishes and then check the RSS sizes again...
