DF 4.0.1b3 - Memory leak somewhere

I came home this evening and sat down to my machine, things were acting a bit wonky- CPU usage was pretty high considering there wasn't anything I had left running that was CPU intensive. Looked in Process Explorer and noticed that DF was using quite a bit of memory and about 25% CPU (it was fighting with another process that I hadn't seen conflicting with DF before- a 'gaming mouse''s configuration & control program).

I'm attaching 2 images so you can see the insanity.

DF was still responding, but it was pretty laggy. It took ~30 seconds or so to bring up the DF menu. Likely because everything was swapped out to disk.

Looks like he is running the updated version of Bins, if the screenshot is accurate

@mlatin: When did you update to that version?

Thanks!

Ah. I can never see screenshots. They just show as [protected].

Oh right It's enabled by default when uploading attachments, to keep customer data private.

The newer version of Bins? I think that has been a week or 2 ago. I can check (possibly) when I get home.

Sounds good, do you know if you've rebooted the machine since updating to Bins 1.0.0.224? That version should fix up the compatibility issue with DisplayFusion that was causing it to run up the CPU, but DisplayFusion needs to be restarted after the Bins update.

It looks like I had installed the 1.0.0.224 version of Bins on 2012-04-30 and the machine was last rebooted on 2012-05-10.

Can it be done only for certain attachment types? Maybe images could stay public, as they were before.

@mlatin: Ok, could you restart DisplayFusion, and then check to see if the CPU usage starts low and then creeps up over time?

@deanis: We may be able to do that! We'll certainly look into it

Will do. I had it running again for a while yesterday and it had crept up again (not as far as the screenshots, but it was still pretty "wtf"). I haven't had it running since then, but I'll start it up and see how things progress.

So, after another week or so of having run DF and upgrading to various beta releases since the last time around, I'm still seeing things where DF is sucking up quite a bit of memory. It's around 500MB right now, and that is on DF 4.0.1b5.

Ok, would you be able to follow the steps in the following post, and then reply there? It sounds like it might be a similar issue to what that fellow is seeing as well, so we'll try to keep all of the info together.
