For the record I totally agree.

Context, in case it helps: I am in the process of migrating off of a heavily used stateless session bean that--right now--creates StatefulKnowledgeSessions and serializes them to the database in between calls.  I've enabled equality checking (vs. identity checking) in the knowledge base, but for some reason after about 20 serialization/deserialization cycles the app server runs out of memory.

I am assuming that JBRULES-2048 is in play here; I was hoping that by supplying my own marshalling strategy I could control how the serialization/deserialization happens and avoid the memory leak.
