OpenOffice (and others) memory usage...



Hi,

I've recently upgraded my laptop (dell 8500, 2.4GHz P4, 1GB ram, nvidia with 
the stock nv driver, not the closed source nvidia.) from FC1 to FC3. I'm 
really impressed with the progress but I have one major issue - the memory 
usage of some of the applications. OpenOffice is definitly the worst but here 
it goes:

Example OpenOffice: 
Starting OpenOffice 
  $ ps -eo"comm,vsize,rss" | grep soffice
  soffice.bin      143976 51996
Opening a 9 page document with very simple layout (25000 characters)
  $ ps -eo"comm,vsize,rss" | grep soffice
  soffice.bin      157708 68780
After typing the word hert and the rightclicking to get corrections:
  $ ps -eo"comm,vsize,rss" | grep soffice
  soffice.bin      323336 234440


Example Mozilla:
Just after starting mozilla I see this:
  $ ps -eo"comm,vsize,rss" | grep mozilla 
  mozilla-bin      97084 29392
After just visiting /. for a few stories the memory usage has grown to
  $ ps -eo"comm,vsize,rss" | grep mozilla
  mozilla-bin      142016 44528


Example Kmail
Starting Kmail:
  $ ps -eo"comm,vsize,rss" | grep kmail
  kmail            44352 24276
After viewing 15 emails from ebay:
  $ ps -eo"comm,vsize,rss" | grep kmail
  kmail            49796 30760
After viewing 100 random emails (about 30% html, 70% plain text)
  $ ps -eo"comm,vsize,rss" | grep kmail
  kmail            69144 47132
Viewing the same 100 emails one more time:
  $ ps -eo"comm,vsize,rss" | grep kmail
  kmail            78956 53624

Is anyone seeing the same problem - and if so, figured out what to do?

Peter.
