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 23:30:48 UTC
Please add more information if you can.

Comment 3 Gérard Milmeister 2003-01-28 23:36:26 UTC
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 23:41:02 UTC
OK, thanks. we should be able to confirm whether it happens in phoebe with 
that .sawfishrc, anyway.

Comment 5 Havoc Pennington 2004-08-09 03:13:13 UTC
Sawfish has been dropped from Fedora Core 3, see
for some more discussion.

Closing all Sawfish bugs for this reason.
