It seems that the memory for Mutex objects, once created is never released. They are put into a Map and are never removed, since there is no event propagted from the underlying cache that the key is no longer in use and that therefore the Mutex could be garbage collected.

Multiple solutions come into mind: a weak hash map or something like a LRUMap (see e.g. commons collections). We would then need a possibility to configure the size of the LRUMap.

Or we could use the neww Cache Event Listener mechanism.
