We've got a similar machine setup that's used for close to the same
functions, except that Emerald isn't loaded on there and we also have NT
Mail on that same machine.

We have noticed what _we're_ calling a memory leak and suspect it may
have to do with SQL server, or the interaction between RadiusNT and
SQL... With all due respect to IEA, please note that this is only a
suspicion; we've not had sufficient time or resources to track it down
and it's seemed fairly minor to us.

I'll try to allot some time within the next few days to compare what
you've seen with what we're seeing and maybe we can track it down from
