User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6b) Gecko/20031124 Epiphany/1.1.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6b) Gecko/20031124 Epiphany/1.1.0

this are two examples, one using TestGtkEmbed and another one with Epiphany:

TestGtkEmbed (no page loaded, ps -axl)
F   UID   PID  PPID PRI  NI   VSZ  RSS WCHAN  STAT TTY        TIME COMMAND
0  1000 12341 12314  22   0 61696 15868 schedu S   ttyp0      0:00 ./TestGtkEmbed

TestGtkEmbed (www.google.com loaded, ps -axl)
F   UID   PID  PPID PRI  NI   VSZ  RSS WCHAN  STAT TTY        TIME COMMAND
0  1000 12341 12314  24   0 99152 22656 schedu S   ttyp0      0:01 ./TestGtkEmbed

Epiphany (www.google.com loaed, ps -axl)

/opt/gnome2/apps/epiphany-bin

TestGtkEmbed was compiled using export MINIMO=1 with the parameter specified in
the minimo web page. http://www.mozilla.org/projects/minimo/build.html.

the build used with epiphany was a build almost like minimo one, but with
freetype enabled.

When you say "freetype" do you mean xft or the freetype code?

oh sorry, the version that epiphany is using is compiled with xft support
enabled, the version that i tested TestGtkEmbed with had xft disabled and both
were linked against gtk2.

yesterday, when i sent the bug report i was using epiphany to write it and could
not test the ammount of memory that it used only by loading google.com, here it
is (the configuration has not changed, no other page was loaded before
www.google.com):

F   UID   PID  PPID PRI  NI   VSZ  RSS WCHAN  STAT TTY        TIME COMMAND
0  1000 29612 28888  25   0 99504 29768 schedu S   ttyp3      0:03

This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01".

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we

you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
