Gaim laftover processes memory eating problems



Has anyone else had the problem with gaim leaving behind
a whole lot of processes?

I started gaim 6 hours ago, and already I have 173 processes
listed as "gaim" under 'ps ax'. Each of these seems to require
a good amount of memory too.

Afew lines from top:

20486 hk        16   0 34604  14m 9.9m S  0.0  1.4   0:00.00 gaim

Datapoints:
-I only use the MSN functionality.
-It seems that only one of the processes actually uses cpu time.
-I run gaim-1.5.0-1.fc4 under FC4.
-Have had this problem ever since this gaim version came out.
-Gaim will not exit by itself, after a while X asks wether I
 want it killed.
-Running kernel 2.6.12-1.1398_FC4smp

$ free

Every day for weeks I have to do a 'killall -s9 gaim' after about
7 hours, or else programs like evolution and firefox dies due to
lack of memory.
