Memory leak in xmlrpclib.py on Windows?

Sorry, I should have worded that better. I do see a steady increase in
the size of the client. However, the server appears to reach a
threshold and stop growing.
Today I'm running a test in which my client issues 6000 calls instead of
600 and has a delay between calls of a half second. In perfmon (I'm
monitoring private and virtual bytes for the process), I see a steady
increase in the number of private bytes used by the process up until the
I had initially thought the leak might be in the Windows socket library,
but I wrote a small socket client/server that did not exhibit any sign
of a leak.
My next step is to write my own Transport that just uses sockets to send
the XML instead of HTTP to see if that makes any difference.
