Well this is apparently a "one line fix" so I would say once they
are happy they will ship a fix for both OS's. We for one will be
pushing for this as we run both OS's within our server farm.

  You know, it says Linux later but they are moving briskly
  on a Windows test tonight. I would imagine a memory issue
  like this, since it is impacting the heap on all O.S. servers,
  if they patched the ranked windows code, it makes sense they
  would also patch the unranked windows server code as well.

  They also know what they are looking for, and it is a specific
  fix for this single issue, which minimizes risk in change.

  Perhaps this means the Linux patch is right behind it all goes
  well tonight.  EA's quick turn-around on this fix, as opposed to
  a next patch, is indeed outside the normal M.O.  This yields hope.

  Anyone know if they ever make releases on weekends?  If so
  perhaps we may see it before the weekend is out. If not, I can't
  imagine they would intentionally hold back if the risk assessment
  is very low.

  Thoughts on this?  A weekend release?

    Which "nicely" states: "EA will select service providers for an open test
    tonight." for the memeroy leak patch...

    So far for us ppl hoping to actually getting their hands on the fix within a
    few hours. It'll indeed be their "ranked partners" first, who can "enjoy"
    the normal memory consumption *way* before us unranked server users can...
