As there are, as far as I know, no memory leaks in Lua, I would look
at your memory manager for leaks.
One possible problem, depending on your implementation of memory management:
Lua frees memory by realloc'ing to size 0. Some implementations of realloc
do not free memory completely in this case but keep a small memory block
