XAMPP Memory Leak (on two seperate installs)

I've installed XAMPP on Redhat 9 and when I start the xampp process memory usage over the course of 24 hours hit's the maximum. I have more than 300MB of RAM in the server. As a test, I took an identical server and installed Redhat 9 then xampp and again hit the same problem. Is anyone aware of this memory leak, and if so, how do I correct it? Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Can you identfiy which process consumed so much memory? Apache, MySQL or ProFTPD?

I am not exactly sure. I am not running ProFTP, I disabled that. I'll disble MySQL and see if that is the root cause so we can at least narrow it down to Apache. I'll post back in a few... (thanks for the quick response).

Dunno if it helps, but I'm running a server with red hat 9 and xampp and on the 24 hours I hadn't yet noticed this leak...
and I have only 128mb of ram

Friends, The problem is MySQL. I stopped that process from running and no longer see the memory usage incrementing (while Apache is still running). Any ideas while I scrub the internet for a possible solution?

does the MySQL logfile give you any clues?
Just to be sure.. is your system Time set right?
type "date" in the shell.

So long

Date is accurate on the system, and the .err mysql file indicates nothing which seems abnormal. It simply repeats the following:

041229 10:16:27 mysqld started
/opt/lampp/sbin/mysqld: ready for connections.
Version: '4.1.7-log' socket: '/opt/lampp/var/mysql/mysql.sock' port: 3306 Source distribution
041229 10:16:52 [Note] /opt/lampp/sbin/mysqld: Normal shutdown
