[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#376372: xfce4 leaks memory like crazy

Package: xfce4
Version: 4.2.3


i just had the unpleasant experience of the OOM killer kicking in and
killing apps at random. A look at htop output provided me with the
information that xfdesktop had three processes at more than 250megs
resident each.

I had a vnc session running with xfce in it for days [maybe a week or
so] now. So it seems to me xfce likes to leak memory like crazy. Thus I
killed the whole vnc session [and xfce in it of course] and that freed
over 700 megs of ram [i have a gig ram in the box, so 700mb is a notable
chunk of that].

The xfce session was sitting idly for most of the time. So i don't know
what exact action triggered the memory leak in xfce.


Palimm Palimm!
