Node-Pdfcrowd Memory Leak?

I am using the node-pdfcrowd module to generate pdfcrowd pdf's from a node application.

We have a high volume of PDFs being generated. (20000 / month plan)

Unfortunately this module hangs after a certain amount of use, and the only way to fix it is to restart the node application.

I have been examining the heap, and it does appear that repeatedly generating PDFs causes the memory to get eaten up. Garbage collection does not seem to be able to restore it.

Has anyone else encountered this?
