Could somebody else help me narrow down a problem before I file a bug
Could you open up a terminal and run top.
Hit Shift M to sort by memory.
Leave this running.
Go to the following site.
Click on a mail let it load and then hit the back button.
Do this a few times.
Do you notice the percentage of memory that X is using steadily going up
as pages load?
Can somebody try this with other browsers i.e. netscape.
I can't reproduce this with any other web site.
Even after quitting mozilla the memory is still used.
This will eventually cause X to get totally unresponsive.
I'm running xfree86 4.1.0 and mozilla 1.0.0
I have just tested this a bit more and in fact any geocrawler mailing
list causes this.
