Hey, I found the memory leak from yesterday!

It was "Django-Debug-Toolbar", which apparently when interacting with the PostgreSQL Python driver, made the later alloc memory but never free it.

Our modules already had some big allocations, but were mostly stable; the PostgreSQL was continuously allocating more and more memory, along with the DebugToolbar module.

Since I didn't believe the PostgreSQL had a leak, I just removed the Toolbar and everywhere went back to normal.
