I am seeing some very odd behavior that I can't track
down, and I'm curious if anyone else has seen it.
Basically the symptom is this: occasionally jEdit will
start to lock up every 5-10 seconds or so for about a
second, during which time the memory usage will surge.
Then that memory drops down again (something getting
garbage collected, presumably), and the cycle repeats.
The problem is that over time, the memory usage slowly
creeps up and eventually hits my maximum (256 at the
moment), at which point jEdit locks up completely, and
I have to kill it (although usually I kill it earlier
to try to stop the surging). When I first start up,
it'll be fine for a while, but eventually it starts again.
Unfortunately there is nothing that seems related in
the activity log, other than the:
[debug] Autosave: Java heap: 80947Kb / 86896Kb, 93%
messages which you can slowly watch creep up.
Initially I thought it was jIndex, but I disabled that,
as well as several other plugins, and the symptom still
remains. Has anyone else seen anything like this?
I'll keep trying to narrow down a cause...
