Thanks, Bob, and I will, but not before you answer some of my

I had good reasons to ask them, one of which is that I don't
feel like wasting my time if, for example, you are using an
older version of Python that *did* have a memory leak.

Python 2.2, for example, (if my memory serves me right) had
a leak in the first release which would have affected pretty
much all software which did network work.

The most important answers you can provide will be versions,
platform (pretty clearly Linux, but please confirm and give
version), and what "bombs" means and how you are measuring
the memory leak.

(I presume you're using a version of nmap that's compiled
for Windows XP then?  It's certainly not standard.  How have
you proven that it is not *that* program which is at fault?)
