I removed Perl, all ports, etc before I started the process, so in effect it is 
a "clean" box.  I'll keep experimenting though.  On your setup, how much mail 
does your box process per day, and what is the hardware specs on the box?  What 
is the avg load?  The problem essentially seems to be memory exhaustion, as 
4.50.x seems to use far more memory than previous versions, and doesn't "clean 
up" as well.
