           Summary: Large (Huge?) memory leak
           Product: umbrello
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Unlisted Binaries
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: umbrello-devel at kde.org
        ReportedBy: sean.e.clarke at ntlworld.com

Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.1.94)
Installed from:    Unspecified Linux
OS:          Linux

I was using Umbrello for about 1-2 hours and I noticed that I using a lot of memory. During that time Umbrello had grown to ~500MB.

I was puzzled as I had used it for longer periods and had not "noticed" any excessive memory usage.

I played about and discovered I could get Umbrello to grow 100MB in less than 2 minutes by selecting around different diagrams and (more importantly) just by moving the classes in my sequence diagrams around.

Just select a class, move it left a bit, then right a bit etc. very soon the memory footprint is huge. I had not "noticed" this with the class diagrams.

I am using Umbrello compiled from source (kdesdk-040113 ie 13/01/2004).

I think the leak is very large and this should be considered as critical.
