[mod_python] possible memory leak?

Hi all,

I'm using mod_python with mpcp to run cherrypy behind apache.  I am
noticing that the apache processes seem to keep growing.  Each apache
process seems to grow from 100MB to over 300MB after a day of production
 traffic.  Is there a possible memory leak in mod_python?  Could
something in my app be leaking into apache/mod_python?  If it's the
latter, I'm not clear as to what the mechanism would be since my
understanding is that mod_python spawns completely new processes for
each pre-fork process.

Any hints on how to debug this memory issue?
