Awesome! Didn't know this plugin existed! I'll give it a try.

Yes, the memory leak in Rose::HTML::Form caused the application to grow _very_
rapidly in size leading to many process restarts in the middle of a request. I
suppose the blank page still shows up from time to time, but much less often.
The plugin you mentioned should solve this once and for all though.
