Another memory leak?

Today on LambdaMOO I've been moving properties around in the player
class hierarchy.  This involves a lot of @prop $player.temp_xxx type
of activity.  So far I have not been creating *huge* amounts of extra
data in the temporary copies (that is, I have not yet moved
$player.messages).  However, the process size is jumping up pretty
fast (2mb per four hours), and it's correlated with my @property
commands (I did some of them last night and there was a jump then).
Could doing @property on an object with 7500 descendents have a leak?
Or does it just need to do so much work that it's not unlikely it will
need to sbrk(), even though it's not leaking?
