Comment(by tomimo at ncircle.nullnet.fi):

 This sounds like the original reporter is using some sort of process
 health checker which makes requests to port 6544 every 1 or 2 minutes --->
 it leaks memory quite a lot in the latest Trunk (tested with SVN17481).

 Howto to reproduce:

 1. Setup a few recording schedules
 2. Run the following command: 'while true; do lynx -dump
 http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:6544/; sleep 1; done'
 3. Watch the backend memory grow constantly

 Depending on the size of the system configuration, ie. how many recording
 schedules you have etc etc. this will consume all the memory of the host
 machine in a day.
