Come to think of it, you are probably right. I have not seen the issue in a
long time, and in the meanwhile I am sure I have updated LWP to the newest
version. Anyway, my main point is that the spider definitely is not limited.
It is actually quite versatile.

Maybe a different issue, but there was a problem a while back where the
spider with some versions of LWP didn't free memory. This was discussed
on both the swish-e list and the LWP list. Was it possible you were
using different machines or different versions of LWP?
