While bugs are always possible, Jeremy is fairly diligent 
about running the 2.2 code under Insure to trap leaks.
Are you sure you are not just seeing normal memory usage?
Does this size continue to grow without bounds?

Do you have a lareg printcap file being autoloaded?  Or 
maybe just a large number of shares?
