That's an awful lot of memory - even when swapped out (I only have so much swap). Dapper's gnome-terminal didn't use anything like this much memory.

(FWIW, that's 3 full size (1600x1200) gnome-terminals and no tabs and after only 10 days of uptime.)

Thank you for your bug. You are using edgy, right? Does it happen all the time after some days? In which case running valgrind could be useful
