[Zope] debugging memory exhaustion

Hi All,

I'm suffering with an app server that keeps blowing through all its memory.

I have a suspicion this is due to a dodgy python script or page template 
pulling too many objects into memory. However, by the time I know to 
look, the app server throws MemoryErrors for each and every request.

What're the best ways to go about debugging this? Would DeadlockDebugger 
help or will it suffer from the same problem?

Of course, it'd be lovely if you could actually specify an upper memory 
bound for a particular request to use, and/or Zope as a whole, but these 
kinds of things always seem to stall at the development stage :-(
