[rant]Ok, I've been ignoring this for a couple of months, but now it's gotten to me and I want to know what's causing it.[/rant]
Here's my problem. I have scim 1.4-9 (latest) installed for Japanese input. It works fine. I have no problems with it. However, when I launch Synaptic or update manager a duplicate instance of scim starts.This is on Debian Squeeze. See below:
After launching Synaptic or Update manage
scim-launcher x2 47.8MIB, 165.4MIB
B signifies before as above
B scim-bridge 34.2MIB
B scim-helper-manager 32.7MIB
B scim-launcher x2 47.8MIB, 165.4MIB
B scim-panel-gtk 153.2MIB
It's not a huge deal, because when I close said programs, the duplicate process stop. I just find it odd because these are the only two programs that seem to cause it. Oh, and I'm using Gnome, if that matters.
As a side note, I have yet to look into it, but why does scim need so much ram anyway?
