Re: [Bug 1088620] Re: heavy memory leak in gnome-mahjongg - LinuxMint Nadia 64bit



I have no idea! Knowing Gnome - I'd say this is below them, to do sth as low-
brow as this. I filed this bug-report some years ago... So, most likely it'll 
never be fixed.

I would have done it myself, if I knew how...

So, try with some other alternative - would be my advice...

Have a merry holidays!

  heavy memory leak in gnome-mahjongg - LinuxMint Nadia 64bit

Status in The Linux Mint Distribution:
Status in gnome-mahjongg package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  When started, gnome-mahjongg uses appr. 0.43 % of my 4GiB of RAM. After making the first move it begins to claim more memory until it gets killed by Linux "out of memory". It's memory "consumption" lies at about 5MiB/sec. After some games this rate rises. It happens all the time. My guess would be the prediction of possibilities, which leaks somewhere.
  I'm running on Linux Mint "nadia" 64bit (DE Mate)

  I hope this is no duplicate, at least I haven't come across this on

  Let me know, if any further information is required.
