 Nope.  I've been testing lots of different settings with different trace
 files.  I get the sense that there is some particular behavior of some SSL
 connections that are causing it.  The thing confusing to me though is that
 nothing is stored outside of the connection record so it seem to me that
 there would have to be an extremely large number of persistent connections
 to be able to consume the amount of memory that people are seeing used
 since the *should* (right?) be deleted when the connection is deleted.  I
 don't think I'm storing references to that data anywhere that would cause
 it to not be deleted.
