OSX Memory Issues
Folks --

For my sanity, could those experiencing this OSX memory problem with the latest betas attempt installing the 4.0.8 version and see if it still happens? To re-install 4.0.8 I think you'll have to delete the LimeWire installer's receipt under Library/Receipts (due to an OSX bug that prevents downgrading installations).

Will do.
the file that has to be deleted from /Library/Receipts is called "Install LimeWire.pkg"

also, OSX won't allow an install of LW in a different user account without a restart. Otherwise, nothing happens when double-clicking the installer and Console will show:
Install LimeWire.pkg to /tmp/LimeInstallation/1041
mkdir: /tmp/LimeInstallation/1041: Permission denied
cp: /tmp/LimeInstallation/1041: Permission denied

here's a memory chart of a vanilla 4.0.8 Pro, installed in a new admin user account. No menu options or preferences were viewed or changed.

I tried to follow the same pattern as before, except that this session was sharing 0 files and running as a leaf on the default ports, which were blocked by the router.

Looks like the VM problem is in 4.0.8 too

FWIW, the problem is still in the release version of 4.2.2 Pro (and also in Gregario's 666). Hiding/Unhiding; downloads/cleared downloads no longer make a difference, so I'm out of ideas now.

The VM is a problem here, because if I start with 2 1/2 GB free HD space, I have to reboot in a day or so to avoid "Disk Full" errors and warnings.

Tested again this weekend with more free disk space (in case low HD space was a factor). Didn't help.

Too, hiding/unhiding LW only seems to TOGGLE a VM rise.

THis is with the released version of LW 4.2.3 Pro on a 700MHz iBook running 10.3.6 as an Ultrapeer, uploading about 40 KB/s.
