I had this bring down my old F7 machine last week and found that it is
affecting my F8 machine at work.  15.3% of 8 gig ram over almost 24 days.

I am not using apcupsd but I do have an APC UPS plugged into my work (F8)

On my F7 system, I found that it climbed drastically while formatting a 1.5T
drive with two partitions.  The percentage of memory used went up and as the
percentage of memory went up, SCSI errors started to show up in dmesg.  

I am going to test further and maybe even try to format the drive on my work
machine and see what happens.

>From the F8 machine.

Restarting hald works well and dropped the load on the system as well.

I am passing this information onto our IT staff to check our other systems and
see if it shows up across all versions we are running.

Note, I did see this on an Ubuntu thread as well so it is an upstream issue.

As the bug can actually bring a machine down, the severity of the problem
should be raised.
