Symptoms of memory leak

P: n/a
I've been having a discussion with a collegue concerning how to identify
memory leaks with applications running within the CLR. I read the
microsoft article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/318263
Would it be safe to say that using windows task manager if the Mem Usage
figure continues to rise when a windows service is running although not
actively processsing then that is a symptom of a memory leak. Conversly
if a windows services is running for say a couple of weeks and the 'Mem
Usage' increases and decreases with the amount of work that the service
is conducting but after the service has finished its work the Mem usage
returns to a fairly low figure say 20,000 K then this is not the symptom
of an application with a memory leak.
