I found another source of memory leakage this morning at 4am when
"daily" started up. I watched vmstat as memory went from ~70% used
(with essentially nothing running) to ~98% used and was never
recovered and had to reboot. I had started suspecting this as every
morning I usually have to reboot the box to make it usable.

This with NetBSD 9.99.64 Fri Jun  5
