If you are using IIS 6 or later I would check there first. I have run into a similar problem where IIS said that any Oracle connection was a memory leak and it would start hogging memory without releasing it. I remember correctly I set a limit to the amount of memory it could suck up before releasing it automatically and solved the problem.
