Memory leak in cluster NFS

We just have tried ClusterNFS ( ).
We observe a significant memory leakage. (To prevent crashes, we have to
restart the nfs-server every couple of hours.)
There is an (unresolved) bug report on sourceforge
). But I am wondering why the memory leak was discovered so late. (The
current release of ClusterNFS is from November last year.) So perhaps the
problem occurs only under certain circumstances (big hard drives, special
file systems...). 
Any experiences?
