Currently I have the following with gnome & mozilla & oowriter
running: (2 hour uptime) -

[root asterix ~]# free
             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:       1035288     488388     546900          0      39240     278740
-/+ buffers/cache:     170408     864880
Swap:      2096440          0    2096440
[root asterix ~]# ps -eo"comm,vsize,rss" | grep soff
soffice.bin      184760 56600
[root asterix ~]# ps -eo"comm,vsize,rss" | grep moz
mozilla-bin      102048 35124
[root asterix ~]#

So, I'm not sure how to interpret the 184M for OO & 102M for mozilla -
as the total memory usage appears to be 170M (and no swap)

Also - whne 'free' shows a large memory usage - its mostly in
'ext3_inode_cache' - and this memory is released when a big IO job is
started (for eg: rpmbuild --rebuild kernel.src.rpm)

So - I'm not sure if there is a problem with FC3/memory usage.
