But when they are 50-60 MB, then it can soon take significant
fractions of memory when one only has 512MB in total on an Iyonix.
Even when all pages are closed, the amount never decreases.
The largest (of four) is currently 16MB, and I have done virtually no
browsing today 8o(
The Jobstoday website seem to have a knack of running netSurf out of memory
The above link, loaded on a cleanly-booted system, shows no sign of ever
displaying anything, but on my system it will use up a 128Mb DA and then 7
or 8 1Mb DAs before complaining that 'NetSurf is running out of memory'.
There is constant network activity while it downloads I-don't-know-what over
and over, but nothing ever displays.
Seen on builds 9382 and 9506.
I've already logged this as 'Galloping memory leak' (although the link in
this email is a new example of the same problem), and trying with build 9506
now, the behaviour seems to be exactly the same as on build 9382.
