[Twisted-Python] Twisted Consumes 100% CPU

Hope you are all enjoying your weekends.
I have a simple twisted proxy server, obviously passed on
twisted.web.proxy. Periodically, it makes a call to a MySQL database,
When I initially boot the server, I see traffic going through the
proxy and everything works fine, twistd consumes less than 5% CPU. I
return 24 hours later, the server is still responsive (ie. functions
fine) but it consumes 100% of the CPU.
I have only noticed this behaviour since I added the db connection
via adbapi. I assume, because the proxy still functions well that the
threads in the adbapi pool are working overtime.
When I manhole in to the server, gc.collect() shows objects are being
cleaned up, and gc.garbage reports nothing.
I am running Twisted 2.5, Python 2.5.1, Linux 2.6, epoll, MySQL 5.0.51a.
Does anyone have any experience of this problem? Is there an easy
Thanks for your time :)
