[erlang-questions] Memory Leak

Off the top of my head...
Are you registering the processes with a unique identifier?
If so you will run into a memory leak as those atoms are not garbage
You could also have an issue with the number of processes you spawn - unless
you specify +P <number> you are limited to maximum
What is "pretty quickly" anyway?
