I've applied the patch with your fixes, and I've always noticed that
VMware seem to leak a bit of memory (occording to top and ps). Running
with 128Mb in a Win2k box it started off at 161Mb process size (140Mb
RSS) and within 5 minutes it had turned into 203Mb process size (still
only 140Mb RSS). Have anyone seen similar behavior, and does anyone
have any pointers to where I can find more info on it?
