gconv-modules.cache eating my memory!!!


Hi,

I'm using FC1 & have 256 MB of memory. My memstat output shows this:

Code:
[/home/soumen] $ memstat |sort -n |grep gconv
      8k: /usr/lib/gconv/ISO8859-1.so 596 791 806 821 823 824 827 828 911 91...

As per this, this gconv is eating up so much of memory. I removed a lot of locales from /usr/lib/locale & re-built the archive. That freed up around 10MB of memory.

How can I bring this memory hijacking by gconv.. Please help.

Regards.
