Description Urs Wolfer 2008-06-17 20:52:38 UTC
Version:            (using Devel)
Installed from:    Compiled sources

If you switch feeds in the feed panel, Akregator leaks a lot of memory.
You can reproduce it all the time. Just open a system monitor, and switch feeds (here with a *lot* of items). Akregator uses then after a short time several hundred MB memory.

SVN commit 849243 by rytilahti:

don't leak so much memory when changing between feeds.

totally unscientific measurements done with ksysguard and by swithing between all \
                feeds (9189 total/35011 unread) and slashdot (3435/3930):
startup: 35,048K, switch to all: 44,336K, slashdot: 41,876K, all: 44,824K, slashdot: \
42,696K does still seem to leak, but nothing like it used to be (switching between \
all and slashdot it took approx 8MB)
