Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

I'm starting to run into the same issue on my systems. I'm thinking of
trying to delete some of the intermittent versions of the Binaries that
aren't needed any more. I haven't tried it myself, but it looks like you
can use the cvsnt admin command.

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
