I haven't seen either of those issues running the v4.x stream of 
RouterOS. The memory leak was solved a while ago and Mikrotik has fairly 
short release cycles.

We have extensive inbound and outbound filters on our eBGP doing most of 
the normal things that you would do on a cisco. The IPv6 filters must be 
built via the terminal to avoid limitations with the current GUI but 
they also work very well
