This doesn't sound like the problem. For one, it happens on its own 
after around 30 minutes, and still takes another 5 minutes to slowly 
lock up. Second, I don't think Scope is even being used as it doesn't 
support debugging PHP (and HTML).

To me, it sounds more like a memory leak, possibly in one of the plugins.
