Re: memory leak?

This is actually something i have experienced with the .13 kernel as well (not
to such an extent as the box where i had .13 running on has 256mb, so it took
a while longer to sort of run out of memory), but all kernels afterwards
didn't shown any of those symptoms again...

You might give the newest ones another try. I have been running the .18
now on a couple of machines now and the abnormal memory consumption seems to
have gone completely by now. I'm not sure if it is on rawhide already but i
guess it should show up there in the next couple of days.

I'd be interested to see the output of 'free' after X11 has been shut down
as that showed very large values for my system after that day of 'inactivity'
and the slow response.

Read ya, Phil
