Description Ali-Reza Anghaie 2002-05-21 05:28:48 EDT
Description of Problem: 
Galeon chews up all memory on large downloads. Trying to DL three ISOs and it 
crapped out after ~1.5GB total when it chewed up all main and VM. HD thrashes, 
everything else drags arse. 
What makes it stranger is X got up to 101MB at the same time while ~no~ window 
functions were being performed. 
I've replicated this (with the wierd X behavior) twice. Out of trying twice. 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
How Reproducible: 
Two out of two. Not trying again. 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1. Start Galeon and go DL really big files (500+ MBs). 
2. Watch Galeon grow and grow. 
3. System goes *slllooowwwwww* 
4. Run Top again, point and laugh. 
Actual Results: 
Galeon grows, eventually X grows, things get ugly. 
Expected Results: 
Proper DLed files without hurting my system. 
Additional Information: 
I would love to use wget but some authentication schemes dont feed well into

CCing to Mike Harris in case he knows of a X/Galeon interaction that made X 
grow as such.
