Description of problem:
NetworkManager, when left unattended, will grow to absurd memory
The following is after 5 days of idle:
$ top -b -n 1 | grep NetworkManager
2792 root 15 0 454m 130m 3188 S 0.0 52.2 11:29.45 NetworkManager
The resident size of this process constitutes over half the physical
RAM in the machine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start NetworkManager
2. Walk away
3. Come back after a time and check memory usage
Actual Results: RAM usage is absurdly high.
Expected Results: RAM usage to be something a bit more sane.
This leak is actually in wireless-tools, I'll make sure the version in
RHEL4 has the required fix...
Ok, fix will be built into RHEL4 as:
Its already in Rawhide (27-0.pre25.4) and FC3-updates (27-0.pre25.3).
