Memory leak in app_server

Running the old Be Sample Code named "Whistle" and moving its sliders using either mouse or keyboard makes app_server gobble up memory which is not returned when the app quits.
I haven't been able to figure out exactly what gets leaked or exactly how it's triggered, but I have made a very stripped down version of Whistle which does trigger the leakage, most of the time. (on a quad core, fwiw) Run this and watch app_server's memory use rise.
I think BeZillaBrowser triggers the same app_server memory leak, which can result in e.g. 500MB still used by app_server, having quit all apps.
