"SilverStripe has memory leaks"?

The page at includes the interesting nugget of information: "Because SilverStripe has memory leaks, you should make the PHP process exit when it hits some reasonable memory limit".

Can anybody elaborate on the nature of these memory leaks? If you could point me to a bug report of something similar that would be very helpful.

I would like to know about this. I have a Silverstripe 3 site running on an EC2 micro instance, and unless I setup a script to automatically relaunch httpd and mysqld every few days I find the site will have fallen over after a period of time. I assume this is the reason.
