Totally about 1.1MB of 4k allocations happen here.
Status: NEW → ASSIGNED
Priority: -- → P3
Target Milestone: --- → mozilla0.9.7
i'm not measuring any real cost to these allocations. on my linux box, i reduced the amount of memory linux thinks i have down to 64M. i tested a patch that adds a cache of buffers 4096 bytes in size. i varied the number of cached buffers with an environment variable. with different settings of this environment variable, i noticed no measurable variation in startup time. in other words, when it comes to 4k buffer allocations, i don't think you can beat the system allocator. of course, it'd be interesting to try this on windows.
I will try the patch on windows.
looks like this patch isn't helping :( marking WONTFIX
