I am getting HUGE amounts of memory usage when using xsltproc with the latest releases of docbook-xsl.
The input XML file is ~563Kb in size.
Versions 1.72.0 & 1.70.1 of docbook-xsl cause xsltproc to consume MORE THAN 1.5 GIGABYTES of memory when outputting in manpage format.
Compare this with version 1.68.1-1 of docbook-xsl installed from an .rpm for my Fedora 4 system) which consumes ONLY 57 MEGABYTES of memory.
I'm happy to assist debugging this issue, but I'll need some guidance - email me if I can be of use.
The input file I used is here:
LaPSS>> xsltproc -version
Using libxml 20619, libxslt 10114 and libexslt 812
xsltproc was compiled against libxml 20619, libxslt 10114 and libexslt 812
libxslt 10114 was compiled against libxml 20619
libexslt 812 was compiled against libxml 20619
