in thread File::Find memory leak

Thanks Sam, that was exactly my thinking. Great minds! If the fork doesn't work, a simpler and possible alternative is to write a main script that does all the logging and a second script is called each time it traverses a users directory which contains the "File::Find" module. This will keep it constantly freeing memory it uses. I'll let you know the results.

The "perltodo" manual page says some garbage collection work is still to be done in future for perl.

Thanks
Dean
