The problem is actually wireless-tools, we identified it two weeks ago but 
the update was declined by RelEng for FC3.  It will be released as an 
update to FC3 after FC3 goes out.  wireless-tools/iwlib forgets to free a 
buffer internally, resulting in between 4K and 8K per scan leaked.  
NetworkManager does scanning quite often (as does something like 
netapplet), so you can imagine how much gets leaked over time.
