[jdom-interest] large number of objects in heap

We have been experiencing out of memory exceptions in our application and while running Optimizeit on our application we noticed that there is a huge number of objects in the heap (char[], Strings, and ArrayLists). While following back the tracing, we found that the majority of these objects are originating from JDOM and specifically xmlDocumentScanner$ContentDispatcher.dispatch() and other SAXParser methods. Worse yet, it appears as though these objects never get garbage collected. We are using Build 7 with the default parser (crimson). Is this to be expected or are we missing something possible in our code?

Thanks for your help
