Sounds like this is on a Win32 machine.  We have a patch in our 
commercial build that will be in the next 2.5.04 release (some time 
soon, I think).  You could also purchase commercial support and use our 
fix now.

Another immediate (and no cost) option would be to move to a *nix 
server, which doesn't have the Win memory issues that require this
