What do the Winbind 2.2.2 memory leaks mean?

I believe the winbind memory leak is what you're referring to as a "classic"
leak.  IIRC there should *never* be a situation where the kernel is unable
to free memory that was being used by a killed process.  I believe Linux
kernels 2.4.1 through 2.4.11 had buggy virtual memory management code, so
that may be your problem.

Did others observe this misbehaviour, too? Do the fixes in
2.2.3 apply to that, or to the "classic" kind of leak, which
should be recoverable by a simple process restart.
