excessive memory use with dropline
I'm running Slackware 10.0 with kernel 2.6.10 on an IBM T23 laptop (P3 1.13GHz, 256MB). I installed Dropline, and it's nice, but it (or parts of it) seem to use all of the available memory on my machine. In Gnome 2.6 (not Dropline), there was about 88MB ram used with no apps open; in Dropline, with no apps open, 234MB ram are used.
These numbers are about the same using the 2.4.x or 2.6.x kernel, as I've tried it both ways (2 completely different installs).
Anyone have any ideas about:
1) WTF is hogging my memory?
2) Anything I can do to change this?
