Nope, I have had 2 FC2 machines running Myth for about 2 months now and 
no memory leaks.  They used to have 512M RAM/1G swap each until this 
past weekend when I merged frontend and backend into one machine (now 1G 
RAM/2G swap).

I am using a kernel.org 2.6.7 with kraxel v4l2 patches, pcHDTV patches, 
nVidia 6111 drivers, ivtv ck107j, and no other patches.

I am, however, only running UP.  It could be something with the SMP.
