      Description

      As raised in thread:

      http://www.modpython.org/pipermail/mod_python/2007-June/023926.html

      it looks like mod_python exhibits memory leaks in the main Apache process when a 'restart' or 'graceful' is done. Ie., when only child process are killed off and restarted rather than whole Apache being stopped.

      The poster though seems to be of opinion that it only happens when certain auth modules are loaded, which makes the behaviour somewhat odd if true. One would expect it simply to always leak rather than being dependent on the other modules existing.

      As it stands, the whole mod_python initialisation really needs to be done over because of issues such as MODPYTHON-195. If done it may resolve this problem.
