Once again the wisdom of profiling before optimizing is proved. I finally got a profiler to run across the code and rapidly discovered that the leak was not where I thought it was at all. I should have thought of this earlier, but it turns out that it was the same damn StringBuffer memory leak that afflicted JDOM beta 8. I thought that had been fixed in Java 1.4.2. I guess not.

In any case, 1.0d13 should have a much smaller footprint all around. I plan to release it as soon as I can track down this last annoying EBCDIC bug. Something in the chain is converting NELs to Linefeeds when the encoding is Cp037, and I'm not sure what. Right now my prime suspect is Xerces.
