Description Dave Malcolm 2005-05-19 18:50:08 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050504 Fedora/1.0.3-4 Firefox/1.0.3

Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

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:
 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.

Additional info:

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?
Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2005-05-27 05:07:34 EDT
Does it happen if you uninstall iiimf-x and start a new X session?
Comment 4 Jens Petersen 2005-05-27 05:14:39 EDT
FWIW I have seen with this with 12.2, iiimx and Emacs in recent  rawhide.
Comment 5 Akira TAGOH 2005-06-02 07:09:54 EDT
I can now reproduce this problem after changing to "follow quickmenu" mode at
gimlet. and run any X applications which is using XIM.
Comment 6 Akira TAGOH 2005-06-10 07:40:41 EDT
a patch to avoid this leaking *rapidly* was committed in CVS. it should be
better in next build.
Comment 7 Akira TAGOH 2005-06-16 08:13:39 EDT
please confirm this problem with 12.2-5.
Comment 8 Lawrence Lim 2005-06-27 00:32:34 EDT
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
