proximity.py is consuming 4 GB of the 12 GB RAM on this system.

Ubuntu 10.04.1
blueproximity 1.2.5-4
up 48 days
x86_64 Intel Xeon CPU W3540

PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+ COMMAND

valgrind tells me that hcitool leaks 24 bytes each time it returns "Read RSSI failed: Input/output error" but I don't think this happens often enough to account for the 4GB even if python's child reaping is somehow broken. Does anyone have suggestions of where to look?

The consumption of 2 pids every second for the sh -c hcitool rssi <mac> is kinda noisy. How much work would it be to use python-bluez for the rssi query?
