Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Log in to GNOME desktop on my rawhide-ish workstation.
Actual Results: Watch memory usage steadily increase at rate of about 50MB/second
I ran top, search by memory usage (before machine grinds to a halt), and iiimd is using the most memory. Kill it (as root) and memory usage drops by a huge amount:
PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+ COMMAND
4631 iiimd 16 0 448m 421m 3036 S 0.0 41.8 0:10.84 iiimd
Expected Results: Moderate, constant memory usage for the process.
I can provide more information as required.
Appears to only leak memory when "No Input Method connected" appears in the
floating window next to the active window. If I use GIMLET to switch to an
input method, the rapid memory usage seems to stop.
What LANG is the desktop?
Does it happen if you uninstall iiimf-x and start a new X session?
FWIW I have seen with this with 12.2, iiimx and Emacs in recent rawhide.
I can now reproduce this problem after changing to "follow quickmenu" mode at
gimlet. and run any X applications which is using XIM.
a patch to avoid this leaking *rapidly* was committed in CVS. it should be
better in next build.
please confirm this problem with 12.2-5.
Confirm fixed with iiimf-12.2-5.
Steps to reproduce from iiimf-12.2-4,
1) install iiimf-12.2-4
2) restart X
3) in g-t, start emacs
