Michael, but what if they are all affected?

Jokes aside, glibc malloc()/free() implementation has very serious problems
when dealing with a lot of small memory allocations - this is why Firefox for
Linux uses its own memory allocator. See this bug:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=130157 and its duplicates.

Even Qt 4.5.x started to offer its own allocator - probably you have to retest
all these applications after recompiling Qt with -ptmalloc configure flag.
