[Sorry I missed this earlier due to some extended travel.]

Can you show us the exact code for your putBlob calls?  Have you tried
attaching a profiler like YourKit or tool like file-leak-detector to
your application?  Thread, socket, or some other file descriptor leaks
can cause weird behavior with the GC and finalizer which can manifest in
the application.  We have one report of unbounded connection use in
