myth does not have a memory leak here.
I use the SVN version, and it is compiled with debug switched on.
It sits on about 700M of virtual memory and about 3% CPU, but I have a
fast CPU and my mythfrontend is on a different PC.

If you want to track this down, I would try the same, get the SVN
version, compile it in debug mode.
You should then be able to get it to report which line in the program
caused the failure.

Kind Regards
