Memory leakage

Is there an issue with 5 series and memory leakage? A friend of mine claims
that FreeBSD 5.2 suffers memory leakage, however I haven't experienced any
such problems, often leaving machines running at full load for days and
finding that they have barely touched the swapfile and memory is plenty

Nosing through the bug listings I couldn't find any kernel leakages
mentioned, only a few app bugs.

If anything I've found FreeBSD to be the lightest OS on memory, beating out
Solaris, Linux family.
