My setup is fairly standard. -unstable, PAE, LVM, routed networking. Just tracking Xen using mercuial.

routeing is not widely used. Have a look in /proc/slabinfo on a long
running system to see if you have a leak -- there have been complaints
of a per-packet memory leak on some routeing configurations.

I'm being completely honesty when I say I look at slabinfo and have NO idea what I am seeing :) If you want I can attach it to a bug. I noticed the run-parts cron is running on the one... I am going to wait until that finishes and see the # of fd's drastically lowers.
