I notice than when I launch StarOffice that it makes a number of
copies of itself. Even when I stripped the installation down
to just the word processor it still does this. Each process
shares the executable but seems to need the oder of 10MB to
itself, so it means it needs 50MB of memory on top of what it
Is there anyway to reduce the number of processes starts when
it is launched?
I checked and the current release of OpenOffice does the same.
I have not gone through any the source, but none of documentation
seems to offer a good explanation for this.
