Thanks lavinog for that info.

This immediately cleared up about 250MB of lost memory for me. Usually my server uses about 60MB but now and then after a reboot it will use 315MB and I can't find where it's gone. Dropping caches didn't help.

This bug doesn't appear to be taken seriously. Perhaps it needs to be filed in a better place where the right devs will see it?

I can confirm that this bug is present on my newly created Lucid 10.4 server install and that the above echo command will fix it.
