Perhaps - probably the right place to start looking.  The problem is  
that the tools to help troubleshoot these kind of leaks cannot be used  
in production environments.  For example, if you tell the connection  
pool to force return connections to the pool after a set amount of  
time - it interferes with batch activities.  So, then the question  
becomes: can these leaks be triggered in a test environment?  Or maybe  
batch should be running out of a separate pool to allow this kind of  
troubleshooting?  L
