sftp over a persistent connection (days/weeks) develops a memory leak

we make use of sftp over a persistent ssh tunnel to move files from one node to another. We've noticed that, over time, the sftp client connection will grow to several hundred megabytes in size, meaning we need to restart this service about weekly to avoid them consuming all available memory. we'res using RHEL3.

thanks in advance!

Did you check for a bug listing from openssh? If there isn't one then file one. If you can afford the (1-2 seconds) of downtime and can stand a kludgey hack then just restart the service from a daily cron job.
