From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:0.8.1+) Gecko/20010430 BuildID: 20010430 When opening a story with a large number of comments in slashdot my Windows resources go from 70% free to 20% free. This is the resources reported by System properties in Win98 under performance tab. Wintop does not report a noticeable increase in memory usage, about 2-3 MB, so it does not look like a general memory leak. IE 5.5 does not have a noticeable impact on free resources when loading this page. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open System from Control Panel or right click My Computer and select properties. 2. Click Performance tab. Not Free Resources, close window. 3. Enter URL into browser: http://slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=01%2F05%2F04%2F120243&cid=&pid=0&startat=&threshold=0&mode=thread&commentsort=0&op=Change 4. Open System from Control Panel or right click My Computer and select properties. 5. Click Performance tab. Not decrease in free Resources. Actual Results: Free resources decreased from 70% free to 20% free. Expected Results: Free resource should not decrease at all or by a small amount.
Doesn't happen on my system. I started with 86%, and after loading the URL, I still have 86%. Perhaps display driver related? Or maybe a problem that's been fixed since the build you're using? I'm using build 2001050304, Win98.
wonderful. Is this System, GDI or the other one? [RSRCMTR.EXE will tell you]

Timeless, the system resources shown in System Properties is (I believe) the lower of the two resources, User or GDI. I think it's the same as the system resources shown by Resource Meter (the first item in rsc mtr).
System and User drop equally (about 50%). GDI drops only 2 percent.
Well, system is simply the lower of the User or GDI numbers, so the real problem is User resources dropping. I can't think what would be using up so much User resource, though.

What says this is a dupe? That bug is about a general memory leak, this bug is about one of the resource heaps.
