It is resolvable, but it requires a complete rewrite of our internal
content caching and management system. It is being worked on, but it will
not be done overnight.

In the mean time, if the memory usage of the development builds is causing
you problems, I suggest you use the NetSurf 2.1 release until the new
cache work is complete.
