Comment 1 Alexander Dalloz 2007-05-29 17:28:56 UTC
The problem is known upstream and was fixed with release 0.131 (440194 fix 0.127
memory leak (Charles)). Please see
As soon as F-7 is released and non-blocker updates are possible I will provide
an updated pan package. Not sooner to not break the upgrade path.

Comment 2 Jérôme Benoit 2007-06-04 11:00:41 UTC
Please provide an update, it's really a show stopper for pan user, F7 is out and
it's the same pan version, though leaking heavily memory ... Could you please
push an upgrade for F7 and FC6 extras ? 

(i'm running CVS version right now, but i'm thinking about beginners on fedora)


Comment 3 Alexander Dalloz 2007-06-06 23:02:13 UTC
I can assure you that the update packages for F-7 and FC6 are on their way.
Please have a bit of patience. In the whole process I have to take care for a
sane upgrade path. So first F-7 updates-testing has to be passed and then, after
the stable update, the FC-6 update will appear soon after.

Comment 4 Fedora Update System 2007-06-07 15:57:45 UTC
pan-0.131-1.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 testing repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.

Comment 5 Jérôme Benoit 2007-06-13 10:07:39 UTC

So far this version do not leak heavily memory ... stable push time ? ;-)
