I'll admit maybe I've loaded AD with a lot (too many?)
channels - 187 - but does it really need to take up so
much memory? Right now AmphetaDesk.exe is 57,992K and
Studio.exe is 6,480K, which is kinda expensive for
something that's sitting in the background all the time.

    This has been tracked to a memory leak in the xml parser, and
    will be fixed in the next version. More information here:

    A new .exe has been compiled with ActivePerl 5.8.1.807 and
    PAR 0.76 that contains this fix. Some notes: ActivePerl
    5.8.0.806 had only XML::Parser 2.31 which did not contain
    the memory leak fix. A user-contributed 2.34 for that
    release is available from
    http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/ppms/. The latest ActivePerl,
    released in November 2003 and used to build this latest
    .exe, ships with XML::Parser 2.34, thus fixing the memory
    problem. Note that I've only built a Win98+ .exe - I suspect
    I won't be supporting Windows 95 much longer.

    Reopening. The new compile failed multiple ways to Sunday
    concerning utf and odd little panick thingies.

    This has been partially resolved in the CVS - new builds for
    Windows will include a patched XML::Parser::Expat file. This
    will continue until I can get a proper build functioning
    with the newest XML::Parser.
