This does seem to be a problem. SpamAssassin in particular launches 5
copies of itself, each using ~8mb of memory. Killing them all releases
about a third of the RAM in use on my machine typically. I'm planning on a
bugzilla session maybe sometime tonight or this weekend where I file all
the random stuff like this ...

BTW there is a known bug (!) in Firefox/Mozilla that means it leaks memory
when closing tabs, ie it doesn't actually appear to free any memory at all
(or at least the heap may be fragmented). Closing and restarting Firefox
can normally release a lot of memory.
