we can get on the types of packets causing the problem the easier it will be to track down.

I think I see a bit of leak on my machines too now that you mention it.
I'll try to track it down on my end as well. Once we get it fixed I think it's finally time for me to create a (non-branch) cvs tag to track
known-to-be-probably-stable builds :-).

This sounds like a good plan. Do you have any resources you can recommend on attaching a debugger to places in code that might be causing the memory leak?

I was referred to the FBSD handbook by someone on EFNet, but I don't see any section describing attaching a debugger to the kernel.

Help on this particular matter would be great :-)
