Galeon seems to use ridiculous amounts of RAM when I leave it running
for a while; it's been running for a day now, has only one window with
two tabs (not even particularily graphics-heavy pages) and top says
this:

 PID USER     PRI  NI  SIZE  RSS SHARE STAT %CPU %MEM   TIME COMMAND
5204 rob       15   0 48464  37M 33416 S     0.0 14.9  13:28 galeon-bin
 312 root       5 -10  351M  46M 25936 S <   6.2 18.3  26:03 XFree86

I never can seem to keep the difference between SIZE, RSS, SHARE and
%MEM in my head, so I'm not even sure if this is abnormal.  I am using
NVidia's Proprietary Crap(tm) drivers, so I wouldn't be surprised if
they were just leaking like a seive.

Incidentally, Mozilla seems to crash within about 2 minutes of start up.
I'm beginning to think that I must have hardware issues.
