Has anyone noticed a memory leak in Xsun on Solaris 8?
I first noticed it a couple days after upgrading from Solaris 2.6
when I found the system had run out of swap space. A quick look at
"top" showed that Xsun had a size of over 500M and I only have 600M
of swap space with 384M of RAM.
I'm running the same applications as I was previously under Solaris 2.6
on a 440Mhz AXi based Ultra SPARC.
I just noticed that after only about 8 hours of rebooting Xsun is already
up to 229M according to top and slowly growing. The applications running
were only a couple xterms and Netscape 4.75. The window manager is fvwm95,
which is the same I ran under Solaris 2.6:
PID USERNAME THR PRI NICE SIZE RES STATE TIME CPU COMMAND
15625 root 1 59 0 229M 223M sleep 22:18 0.86% Xsun
I did check for patches but I already installed patch 108652-18 included
in the 8_Recommended patch cluster.
Is there a newer patch out or a workaround?
