Probably bug 198806 or bug 204374 (or both). See bug 204374 comment 147 for a
workaround. Try closing windows once in a while too (don't leave them open for

That brings my Firebird or Mozilla to its knees each and every time. Note that
my OS is WinXP Pro, SP1.

Interesting that this problem is appearing on a WinXP machine.

In any case, I'd wait until Bug #198806 and Bug #204374 get fixed before going
any further on this one.

In fact, if you could create a more PG version of the process that gives WinXP
trouble, you should post that to Bug #198806.

probably a dup of bug 205893 (patch is being evaluated)

The "memory leak" with URL of comment 4 is the same bug as bug 213391.

I have a PC with 256 MByte of RAM. The memory cache is max 12 MByte. If I load
the URL of comment 4 the size of the cache exceeds this maximum.
Depends on: 213391

With no specific memory details, this bug isn't going to be fixed. See for some tools you might use to
track this down.

This is either a dupe of an existing bug or invalid. Without specific
identification of a memory leak, this isn't of any value.
