Concerning actual memory leaks, I made the experience that these are 
rather easy to track down on the JVM: Take a heap dump and analyze it 
using a suitable tool such as Eclipse Memory Analyzer 
(http://www.eclipse.org/mat/). The tool has an automated analysis which 
can usually point out the main sources of memory consumption immediately.
