Memory leak in macOS 10.15.6?

My iMac Pro has been kernel panicking every night, and this seems to have started after updating to 10.15.6.

I leave it on, come in in the morning and it’s off. I turn it on, login, it begins to boot, then I get the “circle of death” meaning no OS present. Turn it off, and back on, log in, and it boots. Tells me about the shutdown, with text beginning as below.

Anyone else, or am I just lucky?

panic(cpu 11 caller 0xffffff8008f729eb): "zalloc: zone map exhausted while allocating from zone buf.16384, likely due to memory leak in zone kalloc.32 (7849201664 total bytes, 245287542 elements allocated)"@/AppleInternal/BuildRoot/Library/Caches/

Mine too. I’m just shutting down every night as I haven’t had chance to investigate further.

I’ve recently begun to see a kernel panic on shutdown. No idea if this could be related to @JohnAtl‘s issue. I’m away from home, so haven’t done any troubleshooting yet.

Update: My problem is not the same as @JohnAtl’s.
