Actual results:
clocc-applet (and wnck-applet) takes an unbelievable amount of RAM.
they are more hungry than firefox & emacs!


Expected results:
applets should not take more than 1-5 MB of RAM.

I increased the priority because this bug impacts the system performance, 
so it affects other programs as well.
Comment 2 Matthias Clasen 2007-02-02 13:33:57 EST
Does this still happen with 2.16.3 ?
Comment 3 Joachim Frieben 2007-02-17 08:33:49 EST
Created attachment 148267 [details]
Screenshot of "gnome-system-monitor" listing "clock-applet"

This happens even for "gnome-panel-2.17.91-6.fc7". After 2 days of
uptime, the applet consumes 224 MB !!
Comment 4 Mamoru TASAKA 2007-03-24 02:14:35 EDT
Still happens on newest gnome-panel (FC-devel)

Adding to FC7Target
Comment 6 Mamoru TASAKA 2007-04-20 06:38:52 EDT
On the rawhide yesterday (2007 Apr 19), the symptom
of clock-applet seems to have disappeared......
Currently for several days clock-applet seems okay.
Comment 7 Matthias Clasen 2007-04-20 10:12:40 EDT
Ok, thanks for the update. Closing for now then. Please file a new bug if you
see something similar again.
