In a loop:

while (somethings true) {
    $doc = xmlDocFile($xmlFile);

All the documents aren't freed until the CGI finishes.  Instead of waiting until the script finishes, the memory (which can be HUGE) must be deallocated as the variable gets reassigned.

Zeev, Andi,

is this possible with the Zend Engine at all? Are the
destructers called when a variabele is reassigned?

Suspended for now, as there is no imediate fix for this.

This was about domxml, and it will have domdocument->free()
in it in PHP 4.3.2. This is already in CVS.
