comment Should we have thousands of sleeping database connections from the Crawler server?
The problem is, that the connections are supposed to be reused. This way the data base can be accessed more quickly. However, due to the concepts of the SharePoint architecture, these connections have to be closed explicitly by disposing of SharePoint objects that are no longer needed. Failing in doing so can result in your described phenomena. Are there any third party tools in your SharePoint environment?

It's not the Search Service code. The search service acts just like a heavy user who is polling all content pages.

Well, it should not, but with mistakes in programming, these resources might not be released. The problem does not reside on the crawler side, but on the SharePoint application side. For a in depth explanation, have a look at following article: blogs.technet.com/b/stefan_gossner/archive/2008/12/05/…

well, you're right - nothing else makes a connection. But the crawler itself creates connections to the content, i.e. all content. Therefore SPRequest objects still get created.

which out of the box page do you want to modify? web parts cannot be added to application pages stored in the _layouts directory.
