Unless I've missed it somewhere in your posts, you haven't said anywhere why you think this is linked to the bug in this report. You said you're not using any background images, so are you using picwins? If not, it's very possible it's unrelated to this bug. If your memory usage is the same then it almost certainly is unrelated, in which case it probably deserves its own thread.

Assuming it isn't related to the image issue all I can say is that it definitely isn't a problem for everyone. I've got a couple of very mediocre systems that show no slowdown after hours or days of running.


Spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, and stupid comments are intentional.

The only reason I even got involved with this thread was because Khaled said this...

... which made me think that maybe it was related. My reply was to Khaled, not Riamus2 or foshizzle or anyone else. Maybe he should clarify whether he meant display in general or picwins only.

Man wtf is up with you? I said earlier that I didn't check the memory usage after each test. I'm not dodging anything. I don't have an answer for you. Do you want me to take a polygraph test? Do you think I'm conspiring something? If you look carefully at this reply above, you can clearly see where I stated...

I know there will be differences between versions, but this is a comparison of 6.3 and 6.31, not 5.9 and 6.31.
