Description of problem:
After running a while sawfish consumes more than 400MB memory, slowing the whole
system down.

BTW I hope you will support sawfish in the future. I really would like to use
Metacity, but there are too many things missing (Well the lisp engine is not
really necessary).

Are you using a non-default theme or other non-default configuration
that might affect this?
Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2003-01-28 18:30:48 EST
Please add more information if you can.
Comment 3 Gérard Milmeister 2003-01-28 18:36:26 EST
I have the following .sawfishrc file:
(require 'window-info)
(require 'window-history)
(require 'gnome-int)
(setq xterm-program "multi-gnome-terminal")

and the AquaX theme.
However I must admit that I installed the beta sawfish rep and rep-gtk packages
on my RedHat 8.0 box, so I don't know whether my bug report really has any worth.
Comment 4 Havoc Pennington 2003-01-28 18:41:02 EST
OK, thanks. we should be able to confirm whether it happens in phoebe with 
that .sawfishrc, anyway.

Sawfish has been dropped from Fedora Core 3, see
for some more discussion.

Closing all Sawfish bugs for this reason.
