I had problems with too myself and the memleak actually comes back to 
bite if you process a lot of genes.  I tried to track it down but 
didn't realize it was a cycle there.  We just need to put some code in 
the DESTROY block to take care of this.

Can you send the script which reports the cycle so I can re-test the
