[rrd-users] Memory leak in Tcl package?

I am running rrdtool-1.0.33 under FreeBSD 4.4, and am using the Tcl package 
to create and update RRD files.  I noticed that the memory utilization of 
my process would increase to the point that it would dump core with a 
message about not being able to allocate memory.  After scrutinizing my 
code, I decided to substitute "Rrd::update ..." with "exec rrdtool update 
...".  Memory use is stable now, but my program is gotten slower.  Is there 
a memory leak in the Tcl package?  Is there anyone else on this list who 
has noticed a memory issue with Rrd::update from the Tcl package?
