Description Andreas Vinsander 2003-09-04 01:15:20 UTC
When I left kjobviewer running for 14 hours its kdeinit process had consumed
260Mb of virtual memory of which 137Mb where held in the resident set.

KDE was compiled with g++ (GCC) 3.2.3 20030422 (Gentoo Linux 1.4 3.2.3-r2,

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start kjobviewer
2. Wait...
3. Use top (or other tool of free choice)

Actual Results:  
Top showed that a single kdeinit process had taken a lot of memory, the machine
begun to swap wildly (I have only 256Mb physical memory). When I stopped the
kjobviewer the mentioned kdeinit process disappeared and memory was returned to
the system. If you leave it running the system might freeze, I think...

Expected Results:  
Obvious! No leaks allowed!

I am using cups-1.1.19, one printer is configured.
I have reported it to (bug id: 62945) but seen no progress. I don't know
if gentoo tweaks the kde-packages in anyway, that's why I decided to post here too.

Nope, we don't mess with the source other than minor fixes and patches.
