Irssi memory leak


Do any other slackers using irssi notice a memory leak? I've been experiencing this with all versions + slack 11, but asking around in #irssi it seems that not everyone is affected, so I want to do a comparison with as many people as possible to find out where the problem is.

I use irssi as my main chat client and haven't had any problems. What version are you using? I'm using irssi 0.8.10 (20051211 1015).

Edit: And slackware 11 on 2.6

irssi 0.8.11-rc1 (20070219 1935) at the moment but I have found leaks in every version I've tried, which leads me to think something else may be causing it (perl?).

I'm on Slack 11.0 with 2.6.20 kernel but had 2.6.15 untill last week.

Which Perl version do you have? Mine is v5.8.8 which I think is standard for sw 11.0

Slackware 11

Linux - 2.6.17.13

Perl - v5.8.8 built for i486-linux

Does irssi depend on anything else but perl?

I think I might have found the cause - a script may have been causing it. I've had it running for several hours with no scripts loaded and mem use is a steady 0.6.

Need to find out which script it is, but my guess is beep_beep.pl
