#100 Creeping death...


I'm running Debian 3.1r2-stable in CoLinux
0.6.4-linux-2.6.11 on Win2k.
Hardware Specs: Dual Athlon 2100+(AMD 760 MPX), 1.5GB
RAM, 60GB ext3 partition

The longer I run a program in colinux, the slower it
gets, until I get a blank screen(I guess that's how
this computer deals with BSoD's?), at which point I
have to reboot.
The type of program run doesn't seem to matter. Nano
with highlighting in Putty seems to cause the effect
faster than KDE in Xming.
If I exit the program and re-enter it, it's as if the
timer starts over. The program is fine again but then
starts to slow down.
The more RAM I give to coLinux, the faster it seems to
have the problem.
Could this be a memory leak in the memory manager?

My coLinux config:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<block_device index="0"
path="\Device\Harddisk2\Partition1" enabled="true" />
<block_device index="1"
path="\DosDevices\D:\coLinux\swap_512Mb" enabled="true" />
<initrd path="initrd.modules.gz" />
<image path="vmlinux" />
<memory size="128" />
<network index="0" type="tap" />

    I tried running an earlier version(0.6.3), still have the
    same problem but it seems to crash a little more randomly.

    Apparently this was a video card problem on my computer and
    not a colinux issue. I don't know why it only breaks with
    linux related apps, but it appears to not be a problem with
