There's been a number of memory leaks fixed in 2.3. If you can, please
try 2.3.3rc1 (announced a few days ago). In the absence of someone 
willing to take up the job of backporting these fixes to the 2.2 line,
these fixes won't be going into 2.2, nor will there be a future release
in the 2.2 line. 

I have no plans or interest in 2.2 - the changes between 2.2 and 2.3 
are so slight (from a code point of view) that I'm skipping straight
past the 2.2 series for my production systems.
