Memory Leaks (Cleanup?) in Ekit Applet

    I'm seeing some pretty heafty memory usage on my clients. It appears that the editor when loaded uses ~10M of RAM, but when move off the page, the JVM is not returning the memory. If I go to a page with the editor >10 times I use up >100M of RAM and Java produces a nice: java.lang.OutOfMemory error.

    Ideas on cleanup?

      Could you tell  more about the scenario:
      OS/JVM version/JVM vendor/Browser.....

      I also experienced the exact same behavior.  You can sit there and hit the reload button, and every time you do, it adds another ~8meg.  I was able to reproduce this on both IE and Mozilla.

      Just FYI, this is a build with the Spellchecker included.  Here are the vitals:

      OS: Windows 2000
      JVM version: Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.1_02-b06)
      Browser: Both IE and Mozilla 1.3

      Thanks for a great app.

      Forgot to mention, I also get this behavior from the Applet on the Hexidec Demo site.  Just sit there and hit the reload button, and watch the memory increase in the Task Manager.

      Appears to be a Spellchecker problem. Try using the version without it unless it's necessary. Also, a user sent me a potential fix, so I'm working on adding that to the next release.
