So memory use is growing when there isn't much state in the queue. Hmm. 
Maybe your broker is not GCing often enough.

Can you try editing


and adding


just before the exec erl line at the end?

Failing that, you mentioned a script you were using - does it reliably 
reproduce this behaviour? If so, would you be able to share it?

Cheers, Simon
