I've tried an upgrade from Rox-Filer 2.4 to 2.4.1, then
switched back because I was horrified by memory
consumption.
RSS of the process about doubles between the two
versions just after startup (got a pinboard with about
20 icons on it).
After using it a bit (some previewing of images and
icons with thumbnails), the memory consumption factor
between old and new grows to 3-4x... this where I
stopped and reverted back.
I would say there seems to be a big leak somewhere in
2.4.1...

    Run this:

    $ rox --massif -n

    use it a bit to get the memory consumption up and then quit.
    You should get a .ps and a .txt file showing memory usage.
    That should tell you where it's being allocated.

    (--massif requires valgrind)

    For several days now I could not reproduce it with daily
    work usage :(
    I must have done something unusual 1st time, but I can't
    remember doing so... dunno what it could be.
    Sorry for bothering you, and forget about this. When I know
    how to reproduce I will tell you (and "massif" it).

    OK, I'll close this. Sometimes, it's just a leaky theme or
    something.
