Since in the second version, the main loop sleeps long enough to make
sure that the spawned script is finished before another one is released,
this bomb has been defused, but the memory still mounts every time
a process is spawned.

What you posted before was in effect a mild fork bomb.  So you have
yet to convince anyone here that there is a real leak.  Try again?
