in thread Out of Memory Error -- Possible Leak?

perl -e ' use Tk; while (1) { my $top = new MainWindow; }'

    If you're right about that, then it's a memory leak in the Tk module, which you should report to its maintainers. That shouldn't happen, and it's not caused by anything that Perl itself is doing.
