vlserver as of 3.4a 5.77 definitely has a memory leak.  Coincidentally, we
had some pretty serious problems last week because we were not
auto-restarting our vlservers.  As Derrick mentioned, the process had
grown to 63MB in size.  vlserver was nearly non-functional on one of our
db servers.

Restarting them is not a bad idea.
