Description

17 years ago
Trying to load kde-cygwin.sf.net doesn't work: the status bar reports it's
either "connecting" or "transferring", but when it reaches one of those stages,
memory usage goes up in a way that seems endless. (The most memory I let it eat
was 126 megs and it was still growing, faster and faster; I killed it to keep
control of the box). 

I can repeat it over and over, this on nightly 2001102603.

The page loads on lynx and IE but really slowly (the server response is very
bad). The memory eating is also present in kmeleon 0.5 wich uses 0.9.4 mfcembed.
worksforme on Linux, current CVS build.  Windows-only?
confirming with win2k build 20011027..

Mozilla never finish loads this page (for me) but also IE never finsih loads
this URL.

But mozilla's memory usage is growing, very slow but it grows.
Started with 50MB, mozilla use more than 70MB after 5minutes and hangs.
