Description of problem:
While using a pg_insert in a while loop, noticed what appears to be a memory leak occuring in the top monitor. Was able to confirm it exists in php-4.3.2-19 and 4.3.2-25. Does not occur in a fresh download of php 4.4.0 from php.net or in php 5.0.5 in fedora dev.
A doable workaround is using a regular sql statement in conjunction with pg_query.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: monitoring php usage in top showed memory usage going up slowly and steadily. eventually leads to slowdown of entire system do to excessive swapping.
Expected Results: memory usage remain at a steady level.
