ganglia and memory leaking

Does anybody have experience with ganglia? Did you observe it leaking memory 
slowly but steadly? 

Over two months, my 16 nodes cluster reached a baseline of 20G of used memory. 
restarting the ganglia system (the monitors on all nodes and the meta server 
on the front node) seemed to clean that.

Can anybody confirm this?

Thanks a lot.
