in thread How we use Perl.

Actually from my testing the leak is in allocating/deallocating the CS_LOCALE structure. If you run a connect/disconnect loop written in C that doesn't allocate a CS_LOCALE struct then the memory usage is dead even for thousands of iterations. If you add the CS_LOCALE alloc/dealloc the memory grows.

I may decide to open a tech support case on this issue to see if I can get this escalated.
