It improves the responsiveness of the system, and thus improves
performance. I agree it is a work-around - but even a work-around
is (or can be) an improvement.

I'm still uncertain what causes the memory consumption, in particular
as the problems occur at times of the day when I'm asleep (at
American daylight), so it's difficult for me to investigate.

In any case, I created


which allows to inspect a Python memory tally for a specific
web server (reload to inspect a different server process).
