galeon memory leak
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:50:58 EDT
Description of problem:
Galeon appears to have a memory leak.
I run three instances of galeon plus ofter have url references in new windows
(yet another instance). As time elapses (two to three hours) and I do some web
browsing, memory usage (as reported by gnome-system-monitor) goes. For example,
it is currently 43.1 MB Total and 18.2 MB Shared. This generally starts as
about 20 to 25 MB Total.
I have tried to use memprof to debug this but because galeon does a fork, the
actual process doing the display is not followed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
re0204 (galeon - 1.2.7-3 and mozilla - 1.2.1-19.
Did you try to tell memprof to follow forks?
