I think I've noticed that almost all of the people with increased process
size have either used FUP or the regexp heavily. (Most being the former) As
said by (sorry, forget the name) creator of FUP, FUP uses regexp and has some
leaks...He said it'd be several weeks before a fixed version of FUP was
released. (Please correct if I'm wrong.)

Nah, when you've seen you're MOO using 20% of the system's mem, and
suddenly it's up to 30% and still growing... then when ya restart it goes
back to normal...sounds like a leak to me.
- FUP leaks..?
