Just to add my 2 cents.
I haven't found any stability or leakyness issues. I have a webware
server that has been running uninterupted for over a year now. The
memory usage has stayed level and it keeps chugging along even though it
handles a reasonable load every day. Also, it powers mostly PSP pages
that the designers are updating on a regular basis, and are constantly
causing exceptions on.
