I'm using... Config::Std v0.0.4 Class::Std v0.0.8 Perl v5.8.4 ... on Debian GNU/Linux. Reading the same config file repeatedly leaks memory. I haven't dived into the code to figure out where or how, but I've written a test script to demonstrate the bug. The workaround for my application was to read the config only once and keep it in memory continuously. -- Kyle Hasselbacher

Thank you for the test script. That will help. I recognize that re-reading the same file may be useful for a daemon that notices its config file was touched and probably has changed, so this will get looked at. Bill new co-maintainer
