Does LightDM have a memory leak?
« on: January 14, 2015, 01:01:20 PM »
Hello all,
Is anyone else noticing a memory leak in LightDM over time?  The longer my system is up the more memory LightDM is consuming.  Rebooted last night when it reached 390Mb's.  Currently after only 5 hrs of uptime it is sitting at 90Mb.  I've not noticed this behavior until only recently.
Thoughts or ideas welcome!

[edit] in just the last few minutes since posting the above, the mem usage has climbed to 112Mb's...
Something weird is going on with my setup evidently.

Can't say I have ever tracked a memory leak, but I have noticed that it can eat up a lot of memory.

I am tired of talk that comes to nothing.

@VastOne, yes to htop, as well as Task-Manager.  No to plex media server.  Still have it installed and updating it, and run it at night some.  It adds another 250Mb (apprx) to the total mem usage.
