Potential memory leak in file closing #627
Memory usage will have increased by about 10-20mb. It will potentially be bigger with larger files.
Let's try and narrow this down to Komodo or Scintilla first.
This is very likely Komodo and not Scintilla.
Initial Memory usage: 221MB
As you can see, memory usage plateaus. Therefore Scintilla is being a good citizen when it comes to memory usage.
I have tried that, when Komodo starts it's at around 250MB memory usage for me, after about a day it is around 600MB (and usually stays around that point, the "leak" is not that bad) but clearing memory via about:memory has very little effect on that.
More concerning to me is that file opening and closing becomes much slower, which I think is related to this. Point being is that I believe fixing the memory issue will fix file opening/closing slowdowns.
