The memory leak is present in all current OS's. It is caused by the application switcher (RIM documented). Low memory will cause slow performance and if it drops low enough it will erase all non-essential data including SMS messages and phone logs.

To prevent see:

A short term fix is to pull your battery out and replace back in while you have the device on.

As a rule, I do this task when my memory drops below 10 MB

You memory can be checked by going to options-status.
