Possible block cache memory leak

On a system with 1GB of RAM, I successfully managed a complete checkout of the Haiku source tree from within Haiku in a single session. However, by the time it was done, there was ~90MB of RAM free, most of it being consumed by the kernel. A quick glance at listarea indicated around 3000 block cache areas, so I'm wondering if this is possibly a leak. Leaving the sys alone for a while, doing a sync, etc. did nothing to decrease the mem usage or area count. This was on hrev23962.
