goa-daemon eats 4GB of RAM
Last modified: 2017-03-31 09:53:15 EDT
Description of problem:
Hello. My system recently started swapping because of some 'goa-daemon' process that ate 4GB of RAM while doing almost nothing. The funny thing is that I don't even know what the purpose of this daemon is. I'm almost sure this is a bug.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
goa-daemon eating 4GB of RAM
goa-daemon eating < 100MB if possible

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
There were a series of leak fixes in gnome-online-accounts, and with bug 1420678 I am confident that we nailed all the big culprits.
