Description of problem:
glms_applet leaks memory continuously as it runs. After a few days, it's
using more memory than the font server, xfs. Killing and restarting it
the used memory for glms_applet reasonable again.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start glms_applet
2. wait around
Actual Results: glms_applet leaks memory
Expected Results: glms_applet memory usage should remain basically
According to rpm -q --requires glms:
It's very hard to tell where this program leaks memory, so it might take some
time to get fixed.
As a workaround you could set up a nightly cronjob to restart it... Not a good
solution, i know, but a working one.
