:>Perhaps this is a good chance to ask a question about something I
:>noticed a while ago. When running xfs_t_t and KDE, memory consumption
:>of xfstt quickly goes up into the 15mb region - and then never
:>gets lower, even though none of the KDE standard fonts is set to
:>a truetype font. Is there some mechanism in KDE that forgets to close
:>fonts after opening - like the Netscape bug mentioned in the xfstt faq?
: I use xfsft with KDE 1.1 and XFree86 184.108.40.206, and its memory usage never
: goes beyond about 1MB.
Well, that doesn't entirely solve my problem - it's curious that using
traditional X clients like Fvwm in all its varieties, Lyx and others
I can see that memory is allocated for bitmap caches and freed again,
but using KDE it is never freed. I can readily believe that xfsft
doesn't show that problem as it's more integrated into the standard X
font server, which also works fine.
I am still very curious where the problem arises, though.
