today a had a look at the memory consumption of kdevelop, using VmData from 
cat /proc/XXX/status.

With a C++ project consisting of several files VmData grows to 110 MB. That's 
quite a lot. I did the same with kate. There Vmdata is approx. 4 MB plus 
approx. 1 MB per opened file. So the kate part or the opened files itself 
aren't the problem. I guess it's somewhere in the C++-support, but I didn't 
have time yet to find it out. I'll try to check with valgrind/massif.
