Package:           kppp
Version:           KDE 2.2.0 
Severity:          normal
Installed from:    Mandrake RPMs
Compiler:          Not Specified
OS:                Linux
OS/Compiler notes: Mandrake cooker

I've been running kppp for about 5 days in a row without restarting it now. In that time I've been connected maybe 20 times and a total of 20 hours. kppp is now using almost 25% of the memory on my system.  I don't know what info you need so please ask me!

Hi all
Just confirming that I've encountered this bug with Debian Woody and
kppp 2.0.3 (kde 2.2.2 Qt 2.3.1)

There is a full bug report at bugs.debian.org see bugs reported by
"kppp: monster memory leak" which has been submitted and confirmed but
isn't yet listed so I don't have a bug# yet.=20

Kppp is currently using over 100mb of RAM.

Kill -15 time.

you're refering to.

Not sure if the bug still exists, but considering how easy it can be worked around it's not "grave".
Comment 6 George Goldberg 2007-11-09 03:51:24 UTC
Is this bug still present in a recent version of KDE, such as 3.5.8.
Comment 7 J Appel 2007-12-10 21:47:43 UTC
