I synced my scripts up with the latest and greatest from Seth's repository but am still seeing Bro consume all 16gb of memory after only an hour or two. When time permits I will try to debug further to see if I can narrow it down to a particular script/policy.

Doh!  It's certainly possible (I wrote the BiF for that).  I'll write  
a test for it today.
